Pentagram 2006 Large Calendar

Pentagram 2006 Large Calendar

Okay, we have to admit it — we still like having old-timey paper calendars around, despite our digital lifestyles. Something about marking off the days until we see our girlfriends and thus get laid again just doesn’t have the same appeal if we’re doing it in iCal or Outlook. For 2006, we’re using the Pentagram 2006 Large Calendar ($40). Each month features a different classic typeface and a bio of the designer who created it. It's fun, with type.

  • Mark Twain Crescent Fountain Pen

    Did you know that Mark Twain was a spokesman for a pen? Yup, and here it is. This exact replica of the original Conklin Pen Company Crescent Filler ($315) was used and promoted by Twain himself over a hundred years ago. Twain expressed his love for the self-filling fountain pen in an ad in which he stated: "I prefer it to ten other fountain pens, because it carries its filler in its own stomach, and I can not mislay even by art or intention. Also, I prefer it because it is a profanity saver; it cannot roll off the desk." However, the price might bring the cussing out.

  • Bin Bin Wastebasket

    We’ve all done it at one point or another — been writing up a letter or note, not liked it, and given it the heave-ho into the wastebasket. But what if you could make the wastebasket look more like its contents? That’s the idea behind John Brauer's Bin Bin Wastebasket ($60). Constructed of hard polyethylene, the white model is meant to look like its contents — unless you’ve been using it to dispose of coal, in which case we recommend using the black model, and a surgical mask — black lung can be a real bitch. [Thanks, Joubin!]
