BYTE Magazine 2008 Calendar

May 18, 2008

Since so many people found Dr. Dobb's 2008 Hall of Fame Calendar to be both useful and fun, I'm thinking that the BYTE 2008 Calendar might be likewise.

Like the Dr. Dobb's Hall of Fame Calendar, the BYTE Calendar is a downloadable PDF document. Instead of photos, however, each month spotlights a different classic cover from BYTE magazine.

With one or two exceptions, the covers in the calendar were designed by  Robert Tinney,  an artist who created more than 100 memorable paintings that ended up being BYTE covers during the magazine's golden years, starting with the December 1975 issue.

You can download your BYTE 2008 Calendar here.

And yes, there will be 2009 calendars for both BYTE and Dr. Dobb's. Real soon now.
