"...a veritable treasure trove of the calendar art of yesteryear and a calendar art browsers absolute delight!" -- Reviewer's Bookwatch An Official Newsletter of The Midwest Book Review, January 1996

"This eye-appealing volume is a treat, illustrating how calendar art once was artistic, not salacious." -- USA Today Magazine, September 1997

Millions of Americans decorated their homes with calendar art: this unusual coverage of American calendar artists provides examples of hundreds of works in book form, reviews artistic lives and achievements, and surveys the calendar-making process in general in an excellent title which is especially strong in its full-page color photos. Highly recommended for any investigating the history and achievements of calendar artists. -- Midwest Book Review...
