Calendar 1991


This 1991 calendar designed by Keisuke Serizawa is made up of twelve paper stencil prints packaged in a decorative cardboard folder with a stenciled label showing the year. The stenciled prints and label pasted on the folder are 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. 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.
