Michel Chanaud, Editor & Art Director étapes (France):
"Young children have no notion of time. They live in the present, and the future is even more unclear than yesterday, which is just a vague memory. The winning calendar is an appealing solution to materially mark time by linking it to that unit of human measurement: the step".
