From 1991 through 2002 and again in 2007, I produced an annual calendar, aka the binkalendar. I elaborately illustrated and designed each one—and these limited prints were both true labors of love and experiments in book design.
One of the first things people I knew back then ask when they see me is whether I still make my calendars. They were popular, but they were also a lot of work for something so impermanent, and late nights spent obsessing over the details are not compatible with mamalife.
Please enjoy this archive of a passion on pause.
2007: Binka Goes to the Airport
A collection of quotes, doodles, puns, and parodies of boarding passes and travel posters, made in honor of my dad, an aeronautics nut with a strong sense of wanderlust.
