Text from design: Vignelli exhibition label:
Stendig Calendar; New York 1966.
We had always wanted to design a large calendar (3’ x 4’) with big numbers, visible from across a studio floor. Stendig provided us with such an opportunity. We designed the first one toward the end of 1966 and it was distributed in time for Christmas. By the end of December, it was already in the permanent collection of the Museum of Modern Art. Thereafter, Stendig produced it for many years. It has inspired a number of more or less successful imitations.
