Germany: Urania Verlag, 1987. First Edition. A large poster-sized (24" x 16.5") calendar printed in 1986 for the year 1987. 14 leaves, printed on the rectos only, and a plain card backing sheet, secured together by a spiral wire clip along the top. Magnificent large (16.5" x 10.5") reproductions of 12 different Frieda Harris tarot designs (one design - "Lust" is also used on the coversheet, so appears twice). The calendar comprises the cover sheet, followed by one leaf for each month, each with a different tarot picture, respectively from January to December: "Queen of Disks," "Six of Disks," "Ace of Cups," an alternative "The Magician," (a variant version from that in the standard deck), "Prince of Disks," "Two of Cups," "Princess of Disks," "Lust," "Knight of Disks," "Two of Disks," "The Devil," and "The Hierophant." The final leaf has an essay on the cards and their significance, "The Tarot, the Lady and the Beast" by Ralph Tegtmeier. Being so specialised and expensive to produce because of the colour printing the calendar presumably had a reasonably small print run and there is no doubt that many were taken taken apart and the individual images framed: effectively it provides 13 large frameable colour prints of the Thoth deck designs. As readers may know, most calendars are re-useable, after a certain number of years the same alignment of days and dates repeats. As it happens, this 1987 calendar will be re-useable in 2026, 2037, 2043, 2054, etc. A hint of creasing to edges, and a little curved from being rolled. Still near-fine condition. Sent rolled, in a mailing tube. Due to the small number of copies available we have to limit these to one per customer. Item #46161
