The Temporium: spend 2012 joining the dots around some of London's famous landmarks with this calendar by designer Dan Usiskin, on sale now at our Christmas pop-up store The Temporium. We're also giving them away free with the first five purchases today so hurry down!
The Dot to Date Calendar contains an image for every month of the year, plus a few extras just for fun.
You can reveal the patterns by joining the dots one day at a time using colouring pens, a needle and thread or a pair of scissors.
Here's some more information from Usiskin:
Calendars are often pretty mundane things so we’ve combined it with one of our favourite childhood activities, dot to dot.
Dot each day to the next however you like, with whatever you like, a pen; pencil; needle and thread.
Each completed card reveals a London landmark. Every pack contains twelve Dot to Date cards (one for each month) and a couple of extras thrown in for good measure.
It's a fun calendar that plays with the rituals and patterns we have in our adult life by contrasting them with the childhood activity of dot-to-dot. The format provides a framework to be used and customised, coloured and scribbled on.
As time goes on it becomes a more emotive, personal and unique object, taking on the personality of the user, becoming more valuable in the process.
It's British made, 100% recyclable product that was dreamt up and produced from an attic in north London and it's a perfect giftware item for boys, girls, men, women and doodlers of all ages.
