Perpetual calendars never go out of date. With them you can record, and remember those important recurring events (birthdays, anniversaries, etc.) from year to year. Jacquemain’s last perpetual calendar featuring many of her wildlife woodblock prints was an instant success. In this latest edition, she combines both her beautiful woodcut prints of birds with her latest media, mosaics, of our winged friends. Many of the mosaic images found in this calendar can be seen throughout Santa Barbara. As with her previous calendar, each month introduces a new, vivid image from Jacquemain’s vast library of original artwork.
