I know that with the Internet and cell phones, many people do not use wall calendars, but I still like to have one or two available in the house in case my computer is off or my cell phone isn’t handy.
The two I like and write about each year is The Lunar Calendar from Nancy Passmore/Luna Press and Brush Dance by Renée Locks, who I met last December in California. I love her calligraphy and quotes.
Here are the two calendars:
If you go to https://www.thelunapress.com/, you can see a sample of a page of the calendar, an oval, which is quite different from a regular block calendar. It is perfect for a woman who is tracking her menses for pregnancy or menopause or just because it’s a neat way of creating a calendar.
Here is a quote from the website:
“This easily read, yet informative and scholarly calendar is perfect for both the beginner and the seasoned moon-lover. The ’19 edition features fresh work from 24 artists, poets, and writers, full astronomical and astrological data, the lunar year-at-a-glance, complete instructions, and an excellent bibliography.”
Renée Locks yearly calendar from her company, Brush Dance, has the theme of Laugh Lines with wonderful art and calligraphy by this 80+ year old artist and calligrapher and a collector of quotes. (I also collect quotes, so maybe that’s why I love her calendar not only for her art, but also for the quotes.)
Here is the quote for the January 2019 calendar and also her website:
CHEER UP! Birds have bill, too and they keep on singing! Henny Youngman
Both of these calendars make great gifts!
