It seems only appropriate that on this extra day of the year, we take a look at some of the best calendars around. Here are five – do send your suggestions for others – we should really try and do 29 of them.
THOMAS STANLEY DESIGN
Massively reduced as it’s not really the time of year to be buying calendars but this one was just perfect for this post so it had to be included. And anyway it’s cool.
TIMOR PERPETUAL CALENDAR
Designed in 1967 by Enzo Mari, this classic calendar uses flip cards which are stored in the base. It comes in either black or white.
Hang this rather lovely calendar on the wall and simply turn the rings to line up the day, date and month
THIS MONTH CALENDAR WALL STICKER
A perpetual calendar made from wall stickers. Comes with a stencil so you don’t have to worry about lining them all up properly. It comes with its own Post-it notes for you to stick on. All you need is a box of chalk.

Here’s another picture of how it works:
