”We are proud to present our 1984/85 Graphic Design and Typographic Calendar – A Monumental Tribute to the Graphic Arts, designed by some of the World’s Finest Graphic Designers. Each of the designers is immediately recognized as leader in the field. They all have won the highest honors and awards from the various art and graphic design organizations throughout the world. /…/ When we conceive the idea for this project, we thought it would be a simple twelve month calendar, but the response was so overwhelming, we just couldn’t stop at twelve posters and had to go into the following year – part of 1985. A simple one year calendar turned out to be a spectacular set of 19 posters, plus presentation jacket. We hope you are pleased with our ‘Labor of Love’, and appreciate the efforts of each of the participants. Be inspired!” Patti Morrone, PM Typography.
