Just got my hands on three of these Typodarium 2010 Calenders from Verlad Hermann Schmidt Mainz, a very nicely packaged and compact desk typographic calendar. However, I certainly realise three is a bit greedy for one person, hence I will have two to giveaway very shortly.
Something about ripping sheets out of a book I find mildly fun. Half tempted to start ripping them out even before the 2010 starts, must focus more on my new Silly Putty instead.

From the site
Daily typographic inspiration from the Typodarium, the first tear-off calendar with 365 different fonts: bread-and-butter types and typographical baubles, character sets and punctuation marks, old masters and wild youths, favourite fonts from all over the world.
The date – traditional and functional – is on the front page and on the back are background information and details, designers and sources – and even a marriage proposal! This calendar makes every day a typographical day and some calendar pages a font-shopping list.
