gorgeous graphics and colors.

Date:September 22, 2014
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials
After seeing "The Roosevelts" on PBS recently this calendar is even more spectacular. The graphics are stunning and are printed one sheet at a time and suitable fior framing. (I have a feeling that's what will happen.) The artwork produced by the WPA is inventive and so important; it's influence shows in today's art.

Yet another edition of this stunning WPA artwork!

Date:August 13, 2014
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, larger size than most wall calendars, unusual format for days/dates of each month, based on stunning original advertzing art/posters, great value!, understated yet sophisticated artwork
Cons: good quality paper but not stock as once used
Wait each summer for the newest edition of this calendar of WPA poster artwork (highlighting the National parks) to be released. I buy several copies for friends to be distributed as gifts at the coming year-end holidays. Once again, the range of varied artwork, color palettes, and artistic perspectives have not disappointed. A sturdy product that s a bit longer than other standard wall calendars, this calendar looks both elegant and is appealing to the discriminating eye.

Nice Vintage National Park Art

Date:February 21, 2014
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials
Cons: availability made it hard to find
If you like old-time advertising, americana and national parks - this calendar is for you. The beautiful simplicity of these images of reproduced paintings will give you an understanding of what drew people to say "family vacation!" and visit these parks back in yesteryear.

For those who travel

Date:December 23, 2013
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials
I bought this calendar for my folks who are 70+. It's very authentic looking and I think they'll appreciate the historical aspect.
It was wrapped very sturdily-- no creases.
It was delivered very quickly.

Love this calendar, quality has gone down, though.

Date:December 2, 2013
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, great art
Cons: lower quality material than previous years
I had the 2012 version of this calendar and absolutely loved it, I tried to order it for 2013 but was too late, it had sold out, so I pre-ordered this one to ensure I got it for 2014. The imagery is still fantastic, but the material quality has gone down since 2012. The paper in the '12 calendar was a really nice, heavy, matte paper, something you might actually see screen printing on. The '14 is a glossier, not as heavy weighted paper, it takes the integrity down for me a bit, but I'm also in the design industry, and tend to pay attn to these little details, so I may notice these things more than others. I'd love to see this switched back in 2015, though!

Great Calendar!

Date:October 23, 2013
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials, large, great format
I saw a similar calendar at the supermarket but the posters were very small and not formatted to allow the poster to fill the page. I ordered this calendar since the posters fill the page. I am very impressed with the quality. Very pleased.

Date:October 9, 2013
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials
even better than usual! wonderful art work from an important period of history - and they are actual psoters from that era, not interpretive - not that there is anythign wrong with that.
