Born in Germany but raised in the United States, Gustave Baumann (1881–1971) supported his family as a teenager by working at a commercial engraving house. He attended the Art Institute of Chicago at night and was able to save enough money to study in Munich, a hub for innovative block printing. Although Baumann returned to the United States and eventually settled in New Mexico, he remained faithful to the straightforward, emotionally direct tradition of the Munich engravers all his life.
 
For more than fifty years Baumann immersed himself in the community of Santa Fe, where he captured the crystalline light and warm colors of the landscape with affection, grace, and subtlety. This calendar presents twelve of Baumann’s meticulously crafted woodcuts—self-contained, self-possessed small worlds that speak to the heart of simplicity.
