Calendar 1963


This 1963 calendar designed by Keisuke Serizawa is made up of twelve paper stencil prints done in Serizawa's katazome style perfected in the wake of WWII material shortages forcing him to look for alternatives to textiles to print his stencil dyed designs on. Serizawa’s stencils were later named kataezome to reinforce the pictorial nature of his work. Serizawa must have taken delight each year in combining disparate design elements into a mass-produced cohesive calendar. 

The decorative envelope that originally contained these prints is missing from this set.
