Triskaidekaphobia | Page design Calendar Book

Initiated by Stichting Print, 366 Dutch designers contributed to the calendar book. Each designer received a random date and was asked to design a spread for it. The book is printed in black and white by 7 different printers in the Netherlands. Overall book design by Melle Hammer.
Studio Stephan Lerou was asked to design the pages for November 13th. We've played with the typographic elements of the abbreviation of the month November. This page now indicates that there's no 13, move on to 14! At the same time it's very clear what date it is. We love such ambiguity within a design. (Triskaidekaphobia means an extreme suspicion of the number thirteen).
I recommend this book! It contains contributions from renowned Dutch designers & studios. Among others: Fabrique, Drawswords, KesselsKramer, Lava, Roosje Klap, Swip Stolk, Thonik, Trapped in Suburbia, Underware. Buy the book here.
