Calendar 1926 - Silhouette Designs on Crepe Paper by Hasegawa Takejiro
[Japan] One of Hasegawa's more unusual calendar designs with so-called Japanese 'kage-e' (or 'shadow pictures') for each month. Interestingly, the calendar for the month of November is almost impossible to read so it seems this was a printing error during the publication process. The rear cover is dated 1914 so, presumably, this was the first year of this particular design.
