I'm indebted to Marinus Heijting for telling me about this Calendar.

The Dutch company Verkerke Reproducties BV are well known as producers of fine art reproductions. In 1979 they had begun printing posters of Boris' art for distribution throughout Europe. The fact that this calendar was published in February of that year suggests that it was one of their first Boris items. As can be surmised, I only have copies of the covers and centrepiece. Whilst Boris did produce some paintings specifically for Verkerke I am not aware of him having done so at this time so must assume that all the plates were chosen from his existing work.

Due to the lack of information, I would be very pleased to receive any further details about this calendar.
