on the making of an epiStoa calendar page

1. General goal

To elucidate a link between a present day notion and the ancient languages, for example the presence of Latin and ancient Greek in modern European languages and in the terminology of basically all sciences, specially physics, chemistry, laws, politics, economics or medicine.

2. The four steps of making a page

a. Identify a suited topic
b. find one or more telling and beautiful images (resolution: 300 dpi)
c. concisely explain topic and image
d. briefly indicate the Latin or Greek roots of the terms used

3. Format and design ( compare existing epiStoa calendar pages )

The lower third of the A4 page is reserved for the days of the respective calendar month.

The upper two thirds are at the disposal of the authors for one or more pictures along with an explanatory text. The more images, the more self-explanatory must they be as there is correspondingly less space available for text. Avoid to overload a page with text and please leave enough space for the second language!

4. Submission

Proposals can be submitted at any time; deadline: JUNE, 1st

Please submit texts and images (jpeg or png, 300 dpi) along with a sketch/pdf indicating the overall arrangement. The final print versions of every calendar sheet will be streamlined by epiStoa and Atticus. Authors do not need to care about exact formatting or translations.
