Minimalism Calendar -- Click above for high-res image gallery

Mini made a calendar. Or rather, Mini assembled a calendar with artworks chosen from among thousands submitted from around the globe. The calendar's theme is Minimalism, and the only rule for submissions was to include a silhouette of the car in the piece. For car calendar fans, there are no topless women – nor topless Minis, for that matter – slathered in oil...

The calendar presents the 12 works chosen by a team of judges that included Mini design head Gert Hildebrand. The works tend toward the funky and, of course, the modern, but if you're a Mini owner they'll probably make you happy just looking at them. You can check out three of the pieces in the high-res gallery below. For the rest of you who don't want a Mini but just want the art, you can find out more about the calendar at the Minimalism site and buy it for €21 ($31 U.S.) at the Mini shop.

      I am a fan of both minimalism and Mini's. I'll think I'll be ordering one of these, great stuff

      Generally in a calendar, I like to know what days of the week correspond to the dates, not just a list of numbers telling me there are 31 days in October.

      Mini has the best image marketing going. To date they consistently hit the mark with both print advertising and marketing materials. The campaign reminds me of 60's VW advertising. Hats off.
