Reference: Fornasetti: The Complete Universe, Barnaba Fornasetti, pages 212 & 213 for illustrations made for Geo Ponte printed by hand called Lunario del sole (Solar Almanac) which were made in 1942 and which were adapted to a circular shape for these plates in a series called Dodici soli, dodici mesi (Twelve Suns, Twelve Months) which were made in the early 1950's.

Fornasetti, Designer of Dreams, Patrick Mauries, pages 224-5 for illustration of a set of plates.

Mauries writes, " For two years Gio Ponte commissioned a calendar or diary from Fornasetti as a present for his friends, consisting of twelve drawings illustrating the months. Fornasetti continued this tradition by printing a similar calendar for himself.

The theme for 1942 was the Sun- Lunario del Sole, the Almanac of the Sun. Later Fornasetti converted his designs into dinner plates. It was the beginning of a lifelong obsession with the image of the Sun, here equated with a woman's face."
