Special Days Perpetual Calendar

Featured

We have produced a perpetual calendar as a fundraiser for the Society Calendars are coil bound and have a hook for hanging. All full pages are laid out like January one below. The others are cropped to allow you to see the artwork better. This project was spearheaded by Carolynn Dallaire and Carole Youds who cajoled and then prodded the artists and saw the work through completion at the printers. Months and dates were lettered by Nan Maione. The calendars include another page about our Society which includes two more calligraphic pieces. Calendars are $13 each, 2 to 4 are $12.50 each and 5 or more are $12 each. these make great gifts for for any occasion. Make them extra special for your family members by putting in your family’s special days before you give it as a gift.

To order perpetual calendars send us an email.

Come and see us at Wayzgoose on October 31.

 

A wayzgoose was at one time an entertainment given by a master printer to his workmen each year on or about St Bartholomew’s Day (24 August). It marked the traditional end of summer and the start of the season of working by candlelight. Later, the word came to refer to an annual outing and dinner for the staff of a printing works or the printers on a newspaper.
