the overdue book calendar

by Grace Bonney

i really miss the days when i checked out library books on a regular occasion. i remember my mom dropping me off at the library and i would pour over the teen section until i’d found the perfect books to take home. those days are sadly long gone, but after design by the book i’ve felt more inspired to get myself back into a library and take advantage of what they have to offer. so when i saw this fun new “overdue book calendar” from lauren hunt i couldn’t resist sharing. in a world of digital everything, it’s sort of fun to embrace the idea of real books (rather than digital ones read on your phone or a kindle) and keeping track of due dates on real paper, rather than a blackberry reminder. you can pick up lauren’s design right here, as a re-printable pdf for $4. thanks, lauren!
