Walter Crane’s Calendar

aprilIn January of 1891 Little Folks Magazine published a special feature of a calendar designed and illustrated by Walter Crane with accompanying verses by his eldest daughter Beatrice. Each of the 12 panels has a figurative depiction of the month, a decorated initial and a topical verse. In style they are rather reminiscent of other Crane Works of the same period like The Three Sirens (forthcoming) and The Shepherds Calendar.

We have collected all of the pages of the calendar and have them available in high resolution format for download as a mini-package.  You can see low resolution previews here and can purchase the package for just $10 and download it right away at our ONLINE ORDERING site.
