johann volkmer: 'faltjahr 2010' pop up calendar


the ‘faltjahr 2010’ calendar by johann volkmer displays each month with a pop-up sculpture. the intricately crafted designs are A3 sized when opened and folded in half for storage. subtle graphics ensure that attention is paid to what is achieved with the paper.
