The Open Daybook, from Mark Batty Publisher, helps you track the year's progress with daily hits of visual wonder
This week's summer solstice offered an invitation to revisit our civilization's cult of the calendar. Stepping outside its conventions, The Open Daybook by L.A.-based writer and artist David P. Earle offers an interactive perpetual calendar with artwork by 365 of today's most exciting visual artists, one for each day of the year. Each dated page allows you to fill in your schedule or jot down a creative response to the artwork, turning it into a weird and wonderful hybrid of datebook, sketchbook and daily art journal. (And we know sketchbooks hold a special place in the Brain Pickings heart.)
