Perennial Woman '66

San Francisco: Determined Productions, Circa 1965. Vintage wall calendar for the year 1966, composed of twelve calendar sheets illustrated with twelve lithographs, held together at the top edge with a metal rod.

Designed and illustrated by noted fashion artist Betty Brader, best known for her work for San Francisco specialty store Joseph Magnin, as well as her freelance work for Neiman Marcus in Dallas.

Bay Area publisher Determined Productions was founded by Connie Boucher in 1961, largely creating licensed products—including some of the first Peanuts merchandise. The company quickly expanded, producing books and ephemera on a variety of topics, including astrology, the occult, and alcohol. With a vibrant, feminist overtone, the calendar on offer here features illustrations of women from around the world posed in bright and nationally specific garments, with text focusing on the way language is often used to discriminate against women.

Not found in OCLC.

Housed in the original pictorial paper tube. 19 x 14 inches, rolled as issued. Calendar sheets Fine. Paper tube Near Fine, with light wear at the right end of the tube.
