Like Cartophilia, designer Elizabeth Daggar sent me a copy of her unusual project, Calendria, the full title of which is the World Atlas of Calendria for the Year 2010 of the Common Era, as Observed and Faithfully Recorded by Electrofork. Liz calls Calendria “a calendar-as-world comprising twelve countries (months).” As she explains it on the project website, the map came together by overlaying North America and Europe, producing a strange map with familiar shapes: the Great Lakes flow into the Black Sea; Scotland pokes out of the northwest; the Persian Gulf is inverted as an island. The land mass is divided into 12 countries that are named after the months, with related toponyms following each month in a fanciful manner. Each country/month gets a calendar and history. The folded map (not quite an atlas) is available for sale (in a limited print run) on her Etsy page.
