Mid Century Home Builders Calendar, 1964

I came across this and another calendar with a similar theme from the same building supply company (Monroe Building Supply Inc. in Columbia, Illinios) at a sale recently (in Columbia, Illinois of course).  Each month of the calendar features a home with building plans on the back along with some interior decorating ideas.  Some beautiful designs and excellent execution by the artist (intials QA or OA).

    1. I think my favorite is March with its googie roof pillars, but it's hard to argue with June an d its stylish carport. I can email the originals if you can stand the bandwidth. Suitable for framing!
