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 )

Every proposal must fit into an area of 200 mm (width) and 145 mm (height).
This area may contain one or more pictures along with an explanatory text.
For the text, please use a font similar to Liberation serif or TimesRoman serif, and the font size 12.

Please leave free the Header as well as the calendar's week field (lower third).

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!

Final check: Download these calendar page templates. Please make sure your image and text blocks do not exceed the spaces available.

4. Submission

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

Please submit texts and images (jpeg or png, min. 150 dpi) along with a sketch/pdf indicating the overall arrangement.
Please do NOT care about the translations into the other languages, just don't write into the space reserved for the second language;
and please do NOT care about the lower third of the page, i.e., the calendar weeks, days, ect..

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.
