One of our most unique recent discoveries, this handsome calendar was printed for RR Donnelley & Sons, a Chicago-based company specializing in printing, binding, designing and engraving. Each month features a robust American sportsperson, absorbed in the sport of the season.
The calendar was designed by Harry Cimino, a successful and highly skilled Chicago wood engraver. Cimino expertly renders his figures in simple, clean lines, making them pop from the background. Each 21.8″ x 39″ exquisitely printed calendar page was designed to be hung on the wall – often in the offices of Donnelley’s clients. Note too the graphics placed in the blank days of the month – clearly Cimino had fun with his assignment.
