A 14 page wall calendar [48x55cm]. The photographs of the calendar depict mornings of July, August and September during our succesive drives on the land with starting-point Alexandroupolis. Landmarks in our course were Evros, from its delta to the northern part of its flow, other rivers like Erythropotamos and Ardas, areas like Dadia, Asproneri and the endless prairies, archaeological sites as those of Messimvria and Zoni, railway stations like Soufli, Didymoticho, Orestiada, Feres, castles like Avantas and, finally, amidst the sea the amazing world of Samothraki. Photographs taken by Giorgos Depollas. Unfortunately the photographs are low resolution. Back then we used photographic slides which were embedded in the printing process. Επίστοιχο ημερολόγιο 14 φύλλων [48x55cm]. Οι φωτογραφίες του ημερολογίου απεικονίζουν πρωινά Ιουλίου, Αυγούστου και Σεπτεμβρίου κατά τη διάρκεια των διαδοχικών δρομολογίων μας στη στεριά με αφετηρία την Αλεξανδρούπολη. Ορόσημα στην πορεία μας ήταν ο Έβρος, από το δέλτα του μέχρι το βόρειο τμήμα της ροής του, άλλα ποτάμια όπως ο Ερυθροπόταμος και ο Άρδας, περιοχές όπως η Δαδιά, το Ασπρονέρι και τα ατελείωτα λιβάδια, αρχαιολογικοί χώροι όπως αυτοί της Μεσημβρίας και της Ζώνης, σιδηροδρομικοί σταθμοί όπως το Σουφλί, το Διδυμότειχο, Ορεστιάδα, Φέρες, κάστρα σαν τον Άβαντα και, τέλος, μέσα στη θάλασσα ο καταπληκτικός κόσμος της Σαμοθράκης. Οι φωτογραφίες είναι του Γιώργου Δεπόλα. Δυστυχώς η ανάλυση των φωτογραφιών είναι χαμηλή. Τότε χρησιμοποιούσαμε φωτογραφικά slides τα οποία μπαίναν στις μακέτες στο στάδιο των διαχωρισμών, πριν την εκτύπωση.

  1. I was going to ask whose photographs they were and then decided to be a responsible adult and read the text. They are lovely despite their low resolution 🙂

  2. We used to used slides a lot. I have a light table built into my desk at work from the days of using slide film. Beautiful calendar.

    1. Thank you, my friend! Yes, we did too. The quality of those photos [slide film] is unsurpassable. Also the work of the designer did not involve the handling and inserting of photos back when I started. Even in the first 5+ years of computer graphics, the artwork would not include the photos. That was a process for the next stage, colour separation. So as a designer, I was either working with a low res photo [as in this case], or none at all.
