    Letterpress perpetual calendar designed and printed using only Neon by Nebiolo (lead type). Note that Neon has a unique feature: it changes its width/height ratio at different body sizes. The size used for the weekdays here is a small one, with very compact proportions.

    Cover: illustration of the infinity symbol made with words “Perpetual Calendar” written on the ribbon using binary characters (0 and 1 are a digitization of the original Neon numbers).

      The infinity symbol could additionally pass as a reference to the Collana Nebiolo!
