With the event of Standing Rock, the theme for our 2018 calendar practically chose itself: Protection. Peter Schumann carved the images in February 2017, and wrote this introduction: "Protection is a primary human task. Protectors are needed. Water, sky, earth, breath are all under attack and urgently need protection to fend off pollution and endangerment, and the protectors themselves need our support. This calendar promotes all forms of elementary protection and solidarity with the protectors."
The original masonite cut images were letterpress printed by Lila Winstead in the Bread & Puppet print shop and Lila selected pages from Peter's notebooks as background to the carved images of the month.
3500 copies of the calendar were color offset printed at Silver Mountain Graphics in St. Johnsbury, VT.
