The 2010 calendar features 100% BRAND NEW ARTWORK.
Measuring 19" by 11.75", the 2010 calendar's borders feature new, unbelievably-intricate illustrations. Each and every moon phase has been drawn and set by hand. Every piece of the 2010 is completely original, created using only pencil and ink.
Calendar dimensions have been kept the same as calendars from years past. You know what has changed though? The fact that this year's lunar calendar GLOWS IN THE DARK.
Alec Thibodeau's "Probably the Earth's Core Really is the Sky" measures 19" by 11.75", the exact same dimensions as his 2008 and 2009 lunar calendars. The limited edition letterpress printed lunar calendar details the 365 phases of the moon for 2010. A continuation of the past two years' calendar illustrations, the piece is the third installment in Alec's Lunar Calendar Series. The calendar is based on the skies of Providence, Rhode Island but will function accurately anywhere in the Eastern Time Zone and to within a day of accuracy for any location in the Northern Hemisphere. Special illustrations represent New Moon, First Quarter Moon, Full Moon and Third Quarter Moon for each four week cycle. Clouds serve as placeholders in months with fewer than 31 days.
The letterpress print is produced by Dan Wood of DWRI Letterpress on an archival marigold Genesis Vellum 80# cover printmaking paper made from 100% post-consumer recycled fiber. Edition information and print number is blind-debossed into each calendar.
Oh yeah - and also, THE 2010 LUNAR CALENDAR GLOWS IN THE DARK. Each of the 365 phases of the moon have been printed in we have been assured is the world's finest glow in the dark ink. With an afterglow of up to 6 hours, its spectral luminescence makes nighttime viewing not unlike having the calendar read aloud to you by the ghost of Wilhelm Beer.
Alec has chosen the Biddeford Free Clinic as his calendar's charity. A portion of the money from each print sold will be donated to the organization. For almost 20 years, the Biddeford Free Clinic has worked to provide accessible and free outpatient general medical care and non-narcotic medication to adults and children who have no medical insurance and cannot afford private medical care.
