Continuing the tradition of providing an annual calendar, Elizabeth Daggar from Electrofork set out to create a map — something she wanted to do for a while — by combining screen shots of the two hemispheres of earth: one containing North and Central America, the other displaying Europe, the Near East and the Northern portion of Africa. This afforded both the scale and a motley of shapes as starting point. You can see how this map came to be on the site she created for the calendar, where juicy sketches are also included.

With one side featuring the intricate and finely detailed map, and the other a subtle and muted calendar peppered with old-style characteristics, this piece should keep your discovery level high as you encounter the minutia and read the inspired copy.
