REINVENTING THE WHEEL
Famed Italian tire brand Pirelli reaches into their archives to celebrate 50 years the world’s most iconic calendar
For 50 years, Italian tire-maker Pirelli has published an annual calendar featuring some of the most beautiful women from across the globe. It was an early viral-marketing stunt that’s become a highly anticipated worldwide cultural event. Over the decades, supermodels like Iman, Gisele Bündchen, Helena Christensen, Alek Wek, Kate Moss, and Cindy Crawford have been photographed for the almanac by Patrick Demarchelier, Peter Lindbergh, Bert Stern, Richard Avedon, and Annie Leibovitz. In honor of half a century of skin and rubber, take a look back through highlights.
You look up into the night sky. Before you—above you, around you—stretches a pitch-black canvas washed with streaks and studs of brightness. You are, you realize, surrounded by light that has traveled the expanse of the universe to reach your eyes. You feel tiny and enormous at the same time. You are, literally, awed.
But what, actually, is so awesome? How many stars are you actually seeing? Why simply marvel at the majesty and mystery of it all when you can also do some math?
