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 20 years.


Wall decoration for children’s rooms!

When choosing our subjects we prefer to use illustrated children's books and cooperate closely with children's book publishers. We hang children's books on the wall, one might say. For 2021, DUMONT is publishing, among other things, Tom Schamp's The largest and most beautiful picture-word calendar of colours, the poster calendar Das Planetarium by illustrator Chris Wormell, Mäuseabenteuer by Torben Kuhlmann, Sven Nordqvist's Spaziergang mit Hund and – last but not least – Alle Kinder. Ein Kalender der Schadenfreude with the cheeky Alle-Kinder-jokes by Anke Kuhl.

The first children's calendar was published by DUMONT in 2002: with the rabbit Felix from Coppenrath Verlag. Since then, other children's book heroes have found a home at DUMONT Kalenderverlag, including Pippi Longstocking, Otfried Preußler's figures, Conni or Der Kleine Rabe Socke. 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 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. The poster calendar Die Welt der Tiere by Dieter Braun was voted audience favourite at the gregor calendar award and awarded a gold medal.
