2014 calendars: part 5

This week's calendar post is focused on heavenly bodies - from the sun to the solar system and the stars in the sky.

First up is The Circular Calendar, a giant poster-sized calendar by German designer Sören Lachnit, which organizes the year in a clockwise fashion. The yellow form in the interior of the calendar represents the possible sun hours fifty degrees north of the equator, with weekdays, calendar weeks, moon phases, months, and enough space for daily notes represented. A very conceptually cool calendar for 2014.

Next up, a silkscreened Solar System calender from Forest & Waves. With its black and metallic gold foil ink, this heavenly calender features illustrations of the sun, the 8 planets (Neptune, Uranus, Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Earth, Venus, and Mercury - sorry Pluto) and their larger moons, dwarf planets (Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, and Eris), and the Halley's Comet.

And finally, Heather Lins Home gives you a glow-in-the-dark, interactive Stitch the Stars Calender Kit. Each month features a screenprinted illustration of its corresponding Zodiac constellation, with embroidery thread and needle provided for you to connect the dots and watch each constellation glow.
