I have received my one and only shipment of Ciak Academic Planners for the 2009-2010 school year and have listed them at www.journalingarts.com. I have very limited quantities of black, red and orange planners and expect to sell out quickly.
There have been a few minor changes from last year’s planner but for the most part, they look and feel like the 2008-2009 version. The planning format is daily, with a day per page for Monday through Friday. Saturday and Sunday share a page with Saturday having 2/3 of the page. The planning pages are dated from August 1, 2009 through December 31, 2010 giving you a full 17 months of planning.
One change is that the ink is limited to just one color. Last year, Sundays stood out with a large, red number for the date, while this year’s version has smaller, more sophisticated black number, aligned with the outside margins. There are a couple of new sections this year including:
- Day-by-day Schedule
- List of Courses
- Consulting Hours
The build and paper is consistent with those in the Ciak journal and it feels substantial. Ivory, acid free paper is pleasant to write on and heavier than the paper in most planners. If you like the Ciak journals, you will appreciate the Daily planner for the high-quality workmanship that can only be achieved from a hand-made planner.
