2020 Calendar is 11" x 17" open and 8.5 x 11 closed. Each month features a different Gyotaku Print.

Gyotaku is a Japanese fish printing art created by warlords in the early 1800's in order to record their catches. They used rice paper and natural berry inks to preserve exact sizes of prized catches. The warlords would compete with each other and needed a way to record the fish as well being able to honor the fish itself. At first the printing was done with just one color strictly to record size and species, but at a later date it evolved as an art form with many colored inks and paper.

I am a professional sportfishing captain and fish in Costa Rica, Panama, Galapagos and Tahiti. The fish is laid out on the beach after the fishing day is over and brushed with a non toxic acrylic paint. It is then rubbed onto a high quality mulberry papery which provides great depth to the fish rubbing and will not bleed or run. After the printing, the freshly caught fish is washed off, filleted and then safely consumed.

We love the artwork of the gyotaku represented in the calendars. The colors are vivid and work great in our office. The owner went out of his way to get the 2019 and 2020 ones to us as soon as we ordered. I'm a huge fan of framing great art from calendars - and these have a lot of potential for our long hall downstairs. Can wait to get an assortment of frames for them. Thank you, Captain Warren!
