Happy New Year! It’s just about time to put up the new calendar and make your resolutions. Perhaps some of you maintain a calendar (paper or digital) that allows for notes and “stray thoughts.” This charming little booklet is a circa 1900 version of that. Created by Portland handwriting expert Horace Shaylor (1845-1925), it included blank pages opposite the calendar page, which was filled with designs, mottoes, and quotations.

For more information on Shaylor, read the MMN exhibit, Horace W. Shaylor: Portland Penman. And all best wishes for a productive, healthy, and delightful new year.
