Most calendar and planner manufacturers have already released their 2013 offerings so I thought I might whet your appetite for a new wall calendar, desk calendar or planner.
First from Taschen are a range of designs featuring art, architecture, illustration and more in many different sizes and configurations.

From Jenni Bick come the Paperblanks line of bound planners and diaries. Diaries are available in sizes from micro 2.5″x3.5″, 3.5″ x 5″, 3.5″ x 7″ slimline, 4″ x 5.5″, 5″ x 7″, 7″ x 9″, 8.25″ x 11.75″ — pretty much something for everyone in designs that are ornate and rich looking with prices that range from $8.95 for a micro to $29.95 for the Grande Week -on-two-pages.

Jenni Bick is also stocking my favorite Cavallini daily planner, as well as an assortment of the Cavallini vintage-inspired wall calendars.
We Are What We Do have also released their 2013 Action Diaries, available in 6 colors in the A6 size (that’s about 4″ x 6″ for the Americans) for £6.
There are also options available in an academic calendar year (starting with September and either including 12 or 18 months). Paper Source has a variety of simple academic wall, desk and pocket options.
(From left to right and top to bottom: Academic Booklet Calendar 6″ x 7 1/2″ $12.95, Academic Date Book 5.5″ x 8″ $33.95, Metallic Gray My Agenda Academic Planner, 9″ x 7″ $47.95, Academic Great Big Wall Calendar, 24 3/4″ x 19 1/4″, $29.95)
And last but certainly not least (or the only other options because I could have gone on for days with this post), is the classic and ever-present Moleskine. Moleskine also offers academic planners in a variety of configurations and sizes so you can get organized ASAP or you can choose your favorite 2013 planner now before they sell out. European Paper is currently having a sale on the Moleskine Academic planners, just so you know.
