by now, this is the fourth edition of the color swatch calendar and like every year, it contains over 365 new and carefully selected cmyk colors. the calendar comes in a box, which provides enough space to collect all colors during the year.
how does it work?
each day, a color stripe can be torn off and new color combinations come up. printed on coated and uncoated paper, the stripes can be collected to create color matching fans with the use of bookbinding screws, which are included in the box. the exact cmyk data are printed on every stripe.
the calendar contains 371 unique color stripes, printed on 210 g/m² two sided chromo cardboard from fedrigoni. the date is printed in black and white, alternating by week. the cover type is processed with a tactile relief embossing. it is published by verlag hermann schmidt.
the edition of 2016 has been awarded several times by national and international design juries.
