2019 Calendar

Throughout the lifespan of human history, we learn to quantify time by seconds, minutes, hours, days, and months. Time is measured in an exact way as we progress through the year. The nature functions similarly: it creates climate and weather as yet another faithful representation of time, which also is the original one. The complexity of the nature brings warmth, sunshine, rain, and snow, thereby gifting us with abundant foods and fruits. We, as part of the nature, should be grateful to the wide collection of edibles the nature gives us. However, the uniqueness and ubiquity of nature has been fundamentally changed by human: the vegetables and fruits which grows in particular seasons and climates remains no longer seasonal and regional.

This calendar seeks to restore such uniqueness and ubiquity of nature by faithfully recording 12 seasonal and local edibles around year to highlight the relationship between nature and us. The Chinese calligraphy “Fu” on the cover means “blessing” and each month has a featured food in season. Printed on 8.5” x 11” Stardust White (Multi-Color Flecked) 65#cover stock.
