DUMONT Kalenderverlag

The publishing house and its history

For DUMONT a calendar has been more than just 12 pictures for about 60 years. With around 200 titles published annually, DUMONT Kalenderverlag is one of the leading calendar publishers in Germany. Calendars for children have been an essential and successful part of the program for more than 15 years.


Wall decoration for children’s rooms!

When choosing our subjects we prefer to use illustrated children's books and cooperate closely with many children's book publishers. We hang children's books on the wall, one might say. Back in 2002 the first calendar of The Small Hare Felix was published in cooperation with Coppenrath. Since then, many other children's books have found their home in various sizes and equipment in the DUMONT Kalenderverlag: Pippi Longstocking, the characters of Otfried Preußler or Astrid Lindgrens and Björn Bergs Emil. The wall calendar Maps (Moritz Verlag) is a great success since several years. Especially, the swarm pictures by Rotraut Susanne Berner or Ali Mitgutsch which we publish in close collaboration with Gerstenberg and Ravensburger are predestined for large format wall calendars. Our program is supplemented by TV-based licensing topics such as »The Mouse« or »Shaun the Sheep« that are most successful as family calendars.

The passion for detail and our many years of experience make every DUMONT calendar somewhat special which is demonstrated by many awards. Dawid Ryskis postersize calendar »Tiere« (Animals) was the best published calendar 2019 for the jury of the gregor calendar award 2018. In 2017 the calendar »Bienen« (Bees) achieved the calendar award of Frankfurt Bookfair for the best content concept
