"I love the images in this calendar! Dana Squires has made a calendar that is joyous and elegant. Bring dappled light and imperial colors into any room where this one is displayed, and you can luxuriate with a tropical vibe to accompany your afternoon tea. It suggests a space of a mutual hospitalities. With beautiful, cared for shapes - all is well here."

"In 1980, I had the honor of working as an intern for the influential music magazine OP. Dana Squires, the art director, had a whimsical, free flowing approach to design that helped inspire my own zine, Subterranean Pop”. ~Bruce Pavitt, founder, Sub Pop
