Postalco Leather Calendar
Notify me when back in stock
functional and made to last, the leather calendar is everything you
want time to be. The accordion-style calendars made to fit into this
lets you view time the way it’s experienced: zoom in on a single
afternoon meeting, or scale back to see how well you’ve spent the
past two months.
The calendar case comes in either blue or brown. There’s a snap closure, two flat pockets for business cards and an extra long pen slot. The surface of the leather is heat-embossed with a subtle diamond pattern.
At 3.7 x 8.8 inches, this is about the size of a business envelope, and will perfectly fit a sheet of A4 paper folded into quarters.
The first set of weekly calendar inserts go from November 2011 to February 2013 — but this case will last much, much longer.
The calendar case has 2 slots to slide in your inserts of choice. These are sold separately. The accordion-style weekly calendar lets you view 8 weeks at a time, with a week on each panel and little blank space for memos. A 3-year calendar gives an even longer perspective on time. A set of three narrow notebooks sized for calendar case is filled with Postalco’s thick mesh-graph paper — great for jotting down lists and ideas before they slip away.
case has two slots for inserts, but we provide three kinds of inserts
(choose the two you like best, or cram them all in): see the page for
the weekly calendar, the 3-year calendar and the mesh-graph notepads.
The leather is strong and will age nicely. If a light white coating forms at the surface, wipe it off with a cloth. The leather is lightly weather-treated, so it won’t warp at the first brush with moisture, but avoid soaking it. If it does get wet, pat dry with a soft cloth to avoid staining and rippling.
Yukio Noguchi, who invented the cho seri
calendar that this Postalco one is based on, said: “I do my most
important work in the blank spaces in my calendar. It might be possible
that the person filling up his calendar with appointments is actually
doing very little work.” Wise words about productivity, but we bet he
was on time for his appointments too.
Mike and Yuri Abelson — the couple behind Postalco — work closely with the craftsmen who make their products, discussing the placement of every stitch and fold. And at the core of their designs is a deep respect for the skill of the workers — Mike insists that the understated and precise construction of Postalco’s paper and leather goods are of a caliber that can only be made in Japan.
