Especially for 2024—among the rare things John Derian collects, and that his fans love, are vintage color studies created by artists and students. Now he shares twelve of the best in this irresistible, themed calendar. There are watercolors and there are oils, swatches and color wheels, all in the most pleasing hues and gradations. It’s as if each month takes you inside the mind of an artist—but also back in time, in that singularly evocative way that makes Derian’s work unique in the world of design.
