Competition: we're giving readers the chance to win one of five calendars for 2013 featuring illustrations of modern superstitions.
Congratulations to the winners! Michele Han from the USA, Rachel Wilson from the UK, Jordan McCrae from the UK, Winnie Martins from Switzerland and Ignacio Bernaola from Spain all won an Unfortunately013 calendar.
Each graphic is captioned with a cryptic quote to give clues about the superstition it is representing.
January's illustration portrays a champagne toast in front of figures in traditional Mayan dress, referencing the prophecy that the world will end at the close of this year.
March shows a rabbit with a peg leg, as rabbits' feet are considered lucky in many cultures, captioned with "Fortune. Or other people's bad luck".
Photographs are by Anna Molteni.
This competition is now closed.
Five winners will be selected at random and notified by email. Winners’ names will be published in a future edition of our Dezeenmail newsletter and at the top of this page. Dezeen competitions are international and entries are accepted from readers in any country.
The information below is from the designer:
In the only thirteenth year of this millennium, in the first year after the Mayan Prophecy (the year that we should be condemned to not see), in the year of the real crisis, UNFORTUNATELY013 comes to life.
An illustrated calendar, that one month at time makes fun of our modernity, so much clouded with the heritages of a past culture.
UNFORTUNATELY013 is a reflection, through images, about the anachronistic persistence of superstitions in the present society.
A project thought and realized in Italy, ironically retro, but comple- tely projected in the future.
