This summer, jollygoodfellow (Esa and Lisa Tanttu) has biked and walked through Fredriksberg, Vesterbro, Christianshavn, Østerbro… And we have zoomed many great numbers in Copenhagen! Now the different figures have been arranged in neat rows to a wall calendar. For us the numbers plates is a marriage between architecture and typography, not always happy but always interesting. It can be a new way to look at a city through its everyday details.
The wall calendar
UrbnCal 2011 is made up of 365 black and white photographs of numbers plates from Copenhagen. This time we sort the pictures according to area. Like it was with urbnCal 2010 there will be a list of all street addresses the pictures come from.
Primarily the calendar is meant to be like a physical complement to your digital calendar and provide an overview, but there is some room for those who want to make notes.
Our goal is to minimize the environmental effect, so we print on a FSC-certified paper from
Arctic Paper, Munken Lynx Rough, a paper with a high bulk which gives a lower weight without loosing thickness and stability. Munken is a Swedish paper and we are also going to print the calendar locally.
The uncut images from Copenhagen, will be published here on the website (in colour!) starting on January 1st, 2011.
