Cover 2018

The 2018 Outer Coast calendar is now available! Printed in glorious 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.

You can order on line from www.theoutercoast.com, buy in stores in Sitka, or, soon, buy in your favorite Alaskan or select Northwest bookstore. (If the store doesn’t have it, tell them to order thru distributor Taku Graphics.)

This year’s calendar is built around the theme of courage – having faith in what we know is good, and having a “frenzy for the future”: the faith it takes to work toward making the future even better than today.

Poetry includes a sonnet by Rainer Maria Rilke from his Sonnets to Orpheus, and some great quotes from Walt Whitman.

We have two beautiful poems by Caroline Goodwin from her latest book The Paper Tree, published this year (2017) by Big Yes Press.

And, a lovely haiku by Sitka’s own John Straley, from his recent book 100 Poems of Spring, published by Shorefast Editions in 2016.

Plus a couple of classics from poet Lew Welch (1926-1971). Here are some images of the 2018 calendar:

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.
