On the project, Ackermann writes: ‘A calendar as romantic as the backdrop of a large love film and adorably decorative. Original images of 19th-century English wallpaper from the inexhaustible art archive of the renowned Bridgeman Art Library. The floral playfulness and the filigree design of the monthly pages are stylishly complemented by the perfectly integrated calendar in a vintage look.’
