Cover 2019

The 2019 Outer Coast calendar is available from www.theoutercoast.com, or buy in stores in Sitka, or bookstores in Alaska and a few select places in the North West – including Powells Books in Portland and Elliott Bay Books in Seattle.

I’ll also be at WhaleFest in Sitka November 2-4, at the Alaska Juneau Public Market on Thanksgiving weekend, and at the Sitka Artisans Market December 7-9. I’ll also have original wood engraving prints and notecards, which are also available on the website.

Calendars are printed in color on heavy, vellum-surface Natural colored paper by Alaska Litho in Juneau, Alaska U.S.A.

This calendar features my original art, poetry by Alaskans and other greats, gardening reminders for southeastern Alaska, and wilderness anniversaries. It opens out to 11 x 17 inches (8 1/2 by 11 closed), has a handy hole for hanging, and, has complete year of 2019 on the last page. The price is $15 but there are discounts starting at two.

This year’s calendar is built around the theme of imperfection – nobody’s perfect, and that’s ok.

Poetry includes lines from William Wordsworth, Shakespeare, and Beat poet Lew Welch (1926-1971).

This calendar also features work by John Straley, novelist and poet, and some beautiful, inspiring work by Caroline Goodwin.

I will soon be adding an article, explaining what this case was about, that denied the right of children to attend school if they lived in the Native area of Sitka. Davis Case Testimony

This file contains the testimony taken at Sitka in 1906, as to whether or not the plaintiffs – children of “mixed blood,” were or were not “civilized.”

It’s here! You can buy on line, or from stores in Alaska and beyond, in Washington, Oregon, and Idaho! Cover 2015

More about the calendar, as well as original prints and notecards, the order form and more are at my website The Outer Coast (theoutercoast.com).

I’ve published the calendar since 1995, and in full color since 2008.

I am very proud of it being printed in the United States, in fact in Juneau, Alaska, at the employee-owned Alaska Litho.

Here is a slide show of the other images in the calendar. The poetry and quotes are by Alaskan poets Caroline Goodwin, John Straley, Pete Weiland, young poet Anja Brooks-Schmidt, with classic lines from Ralph Waldo Emerson, Edward Lear, William Wordsworth, Gerard Manley Hopkins, and Walt Whitman, on a theme of being in the moment.

I think it’s the best yet, but I always think that. Enjoy.
