I’d forgotten I was a Miss Piggy fan in my former life (who, moi?). I must have expressed myself at the office, and after that, people brought me Miss Piggy gifts for my desk and bulletin board. I found this 1981 calendar when I cleared some boxes out of the basement last summer. Here’s the glamor-pig on a fantasy Harper’s Bazaar cover…
The theme here is a magazine cover for each month. Since I’m a sci-fi fan, of course I like this Omni cover. Omni ceased publication in 1998… hmm, I’ve found several vintage magazines so far, maybe I’ll find a real Omni magazine in one of my other boxes.
I was in danger of tossing this calendar into the recycling bin when I thought: “Oh what the heck”, and listed it on Amazon. That was a few months ago. Today, it sold! I sent it off to its new home, still amazed that someone wanted it, and grateful to the 21st Century that there’s such a simple way to share it.
And by the way, that anti-gravity miracle weight-loss method sounds interesting, yes?
Here’s Miss Piggy on a Life cover…
Now back to Miss Piggy… Wouldn’t it be fun to have a job making up stuff like this? Here’s a detail of Christmas a la the Saturday Evening Post.
Now I’m wondering if Miss Piggy was the Hello Kitty of yester-year. What do you think?
