New year’s greeting card announcing the Reines d’Egypte (Queens of Egypt) exhibition, to be held in summer 2008.

I designed and illustrated this 3 season Egyptian calendar as a play on the traditional new year’s calendars. This elegant, triangular calendar is unusually large, and is intended as a display piece and a conversation starter for personnel at the Grimaldi Forum in Monaco.

The 3 Egyptian seasons (innundation, emergence and harvest) are each illustrated on a face of the calendar. The vectorial illustrations are inspired by the wall paintings of ancient Egypt. I also consulted with several Egyptologists while documenting my work, to assure that the hieroglyphs and other historical information was as accurate as possible.

The illustrations were then embossed onto heavy weight, ivory tinted Intuit paper, without any ink or varnish, evoking the stone engravings found on the walls of the Egyptian pyramids.

I then designed a long, narrow tri-fold card to fit into the triangular calendar. This card served to announce the upcoming summer exhibition, explain the Egyptian seasons and show how the Eygptian calendar compares to the Gregorian calendar.
