About Workman Calendars

Don’t just count the days. Make the days count.

From the very beginning, back in 1977, Workman Calendars has followed one guiding principle: to bring to our calendars the same editorial integrity, focus on design and the highest production standards, and energetic publicity and marketing that we bring to our books. Coincidentally the title that launched our business—and kickstarted the whole idea of a viable retail calendar business—came from a book, B. Kliban’s New York Times bestselling Cat. The next calendar innovation that truly cemented our efforts and reputation was also very booklike: the 1979 unveiling of the Page-A-Day Calendar, with smart and fresh content for every day of the year.  

Now, almost 50 years and over 200 million copies sold later, Workman continues to publish bestselling calendars; set the standard for quality, excellence, and value; and above all, deliver pleasure to our audience. To give our customers, every year, a calendar that speaks to their passions in the best possible way.
