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.
