japonisme: a man for... golf?: 1897, 1899, 1900, 1906 (the calendars)

a man for... golf?: 1897, 1899, 1900, 1906 (the calendars)

this moment of the birth of the poster
around the world, was the perfect moment
for edward penfield to shine.

the calendar was, as we have seen,
an excellent use of the new, japanese-inspired,
methods of printing and design.

it's not difficult to stumble across
the covers of his calendars,
but how i love to play the detective
to find the other pages.

penfield's 1906 may have had no other pages.
i couldn't find anything, not even
images that looked like they may have had
a little calendar section on the bottom.

but it's been so much fun finding what i could.
i hope my obsession (and my thanks to
this artist) is shared by you too!
