The Last Calendar: Your Companion for the 356 Days of 2012

A Project by Bigert & Bergström for Cabinet Books

Edited by Jeffrey Kastner, Sina Najafi.

The Last Calendar: Your Companion for the 356 Days of 2012When the current cycle of the Maya Long Count calendar concludes on 21 December 2012, the world will end. And so Cabinet offers doomed readers a guide to the brief time that remains. This oversized, beautifully produced wall calendar, featuring artworks by Swedish artists Bigert & Bergström illustrating 12 methods of divination, ignores the familiar holidays in favor of more than 60 significant dates in the history of apocalyptic prophecy. Starring comets, aliens, floods, returning messiahs and more, The Last Calendar will be with you for all the days of the coming year, and ends--as will you--on 21 December 2012.

Featured image, "Eleomancy: Divination through the observation of oil," by Bigert & Bergstrom, is reproduced from The Last Calendar.

FROM THE BOOK
"A calendar is a clean slate for predictions, the grid that guides us through time. One could view the entries in a calendar as small-scale prophecies, since we can never know for certain if all our meetings, dinners, and trips will actually take place, but strangely enough, most of the things we mark on our calendars do in fact come true."
-The editors of The Last Calendar
