Dunsyre: Wild Hawthorn Press, 1975.

22.2 x 14.6cm, 8pp (single card folded twice) . A “calendar” designed by Laurie Clark for Finlay with each of the months being given new symbolism. For example, January has a drawing of “black bees and white bees”, March is “glider-days”, October – blue swan lake and December – the silent hive.
The use of symbols for each month is reminiscent of Le Calendrier Republican that was introduced on 24 October 1793 by the National Convention where the names of months were replaced with objects relevant for that season or month with the year beginning in March. Finlay/Clark’s is less radical in that the names and dates of the months are not replaced but the symbolism is similar if more modern.VG+.
