based on the continuously increasing popularity of facial hair, anna marinenko has created the 2015 ‘bearded year’ calendar. the body consists of 12 transparent A4 size layers (210 mm by 297 mm) representative of each month, with the numbers and their corresponding days placed in the footer. the graphic overlays mimic the effect of growth with the passage of time while the saturation of the light blue tint pages is enhanced as they are turned.
