Auerbach Kinder Kalendar, 2019, Mast Books (NYC, USA) | Wild Palms (Düsseldorf, Germany)| 14A (Hamburg, Germany)

The Kinder Kalender is an antiquated subcategory of institutionalized time keeping books: a calendar for children, rich with poetry and illustrations, rhymes and fables that mark the passage of time for a child. Time in a child's life passes with much greater mystery; the relationship between a minute to an hour to a day to a week to a month to a year takes on its own mythical rhythm, connected to the way the sun looks, the rituals holidays associated with each season, the structure of the school semester, and the cycles of the moon.
