The 2011 Leonard Cohen Calendar
The above graphic (click on image for best viewing) displays the first monthly offering from the 2011 Leonard Cohen Calendar Project.
Each month will feature a photo and a few annotated dates pertinent to Leonard Cohen. The January calendar, for example, includes the following dates:
- Jan 13, 2008: LC announces Leonard Cohen World Tour
- Jan 14, 1930: Esther Cohen Born
- Jan 30, 2010: LC receives Lifetime Achievement Grammy
“Pertinent Dates” is a deliberately ambiguous category operationally defined as dates I find that seem important or interesting relative to Leonard Cohen. The current plan calls for the calendar to include major Jewish holidays but not national or other religious holidays.1 This is a pragmatic decision; a calendar that listed all Jewish, Catholic, Buddhist, Canadian, and American holidays would be overwhelming.
Compiling this list is proving no simple task; readers are urged to recommend Cohen-pertinent dates by email or in the comments.
Sometime during the last week of each month, the next month’s calendar page will be made available for download.
All published monthly calendars can be found at Leonard Cohen Calendar Project.
Download And Print Jan 2011 Leonard Cohen Calendar
1. Right-click on the link below corresponding with the graphic format (PDF or JPG) you prefer (both formats display the same image) and then choose “Open link in new window” or “Open link in new tab” to open the download service pages in new windows or tabs (left clicking on the links may open the download service pages in this same window; in that case, click the “Back” arrow on your browser to return to this post):
2. On the download service pages that open, click on this image:
Opening the JPG or PDF file produces an image that should print as-is on a standard (American) 8.5″ X 11″ sheet of paper with a standard laser or ink-jet printer with standard margins and settings by selecting “File – Print” or hitting “Control + P.” [Let's pause here to allow for mordant snickering.] Your mileage may vary and adjustments may be necessary. All future calendars should be in the same format so once the settings on your printer with your paper produce the desired result, those settings should also work in the future.
The calendar portion of the image has blue accents and some photos may be in color, but I intend to make a conscientious effort to use photos and calendar formats that will present well in black and white.
