OPEN FOR BUSINESS!


Geek Calendar is now open for pre-orders. Alert your Grannies now! Or just buy one yourself. In fact buy several. It is £11.75 (plus P&P), lasts you until January 2012 and geekifies any room it graces.

Put your order in here.

In case you are wondering why you'd buy a calendar in August, we're only doing a limited print run.

Plus, all orders made before 5pm British Summer Time, 15th of September 2010 will be put into our special prize draw. Prizes include Sydney Padua's AMAZING, signed illustration of Charles Babbage suing her for libel (draft of this here), tickets to our star-studded launch party in October and, er, a hand-knitted Higgs boson (more prizes to be announced in the next few weeks).

The actual calendar photos are still secret - the photos here and on flickr are just backstage snaps, not the final calendar images. However, we'll be posting some sneak previews soon, and you can tell who is featured in the calendar from our blogposts (e.g. last three: Chris Addison, Brian Cox & Gia Milinovich and Aleks Krotoski). We also have a couple more shoots to do (including at least one very exciting one) so watch this space.

So, what are you waiting for? Put your order in. It's what all the cool kids aren't doing.

UPDATE 15/9/10: Signed books from some of our geeks, including Simon Singh, Lewis Dartnell, Roger Highfield, Alex Bellos and Mark Henderson (in 6 different languages...), have been added to the prizes.

  1. :O I might just have to buy this.

    Also, I have never heard of anything better than a hand-knitted higgs boson, possibly a sign that I'm nerdy enough to own this calender.

  2. Just ordered mine :)
    Though it has taken 2 address's off me, is there an email address I can write to, so I can give you the correct one.
    I'm moving house and would hate to miss me geeks.

  4. I just bought one of these, but was dismayed that I had to enter "N/A" into two fields when filling in my address.

    Look, we're really pleased for you that you can do form validation and everything, but I LIVE IN A CITY AND THEREFORE I DON'T HAVE A SECOND ADDRESS LINE OR A COUNTY IN MY ADDRESS.

    (And I was exaggerating when I said you could do form validation: you only told me which group of fields you wanted me to enter more information into, not which specific fields.)

    Please hand in your geek card at the door. And you should really get out more, take in some addresses and so forth.

  6. Outside UK should contact you for "advice on postage costs and delivery estimates before placing your order." Can't seem to find contact info-- what is said advice? Many thanks!
