For DUMONT, a calendar is more than just 12 pictures, and has been for more than 60 years. With around 200 titles a year, DUMONT Kalenderverlag is one of the leading calendar brands in Germany. Calendars for children have been an integral part of the program for 20 years.
In its choice of themes, DUMONT has a preference for illustrated children's books. We hang children's books on the wall, you might say. New for 2023 are Die Olchis by Erhard Dietl, a cooperation with Verlag Friedrich Oetinger or the cow Lieselotte by Alexander Steffensmeier in cooperation with Sauerländer, decorative and educational poster calendars such as Das Museum des Meeres (Prestel) or functional family calendars featuring the Gruffalo or the protagonists from Carlsens´ Die Schule der magischen Tiere.
Back in 2002 the first calendar of the little hare Felix was published in cooperation with Coppenrath Verlag. Since then, many children's book heroes have made their appearance at DUMONT Kalenderverlag: including Pippi Longstocking or Otfried Preußler's characters. The swarm pictures by Rotraut Susanne Berner or Ali Mitgutsch, which we have successfully produced as calendars with Gerstenberg and Ravensburger for many years, are virtually predestined for large-format wall calendars. The wall calendar Alle Welt (Moritz Verlag) is also a lasting success. Our book-affine program is complemented by TV-based licensed themes such as Die Sendung mit der Maus or Conni, which are particularly successful as family calendars.
The fact that our attention to detail and our many years of experience make every DUMONT calendar something special is proven by the many awards we receive, including the annual gregor calendar award and the Frankfurt Book Fair calendar prize.
