Are you still looking for a Christmas gift for a Hawkeye-loving friend or family member? Or perhaps you're looking for a Hawkeye-related gift to treat yourself with. Do you *(or your Hawkeye-loving friends and family members) need something to help count down the time until the NCAA Tournament or next year's football season? I come bearing good news from our friends at Asgard Press, then: they've got two sharp-looking 2015 calendars featuring vintage Iowa football program art, a standard wall-hanging calendar and a desktop version.
Here are a few examples of the vintage program art featured in the calendars themselves, in which we can see that the days of yore featured:
Plenty of corn-related imagery:
Wonderfully elaborate mustaches:
Further affirmation that #PuntingIsWinning:
And just plain excellent imagery:

I received copies of the wall calendar and the desktop calendar for review purposes and they're both very nice-looking, sturdy calendars on thick paper-stock. Size-wise, the wall calendar is a bit bigger than a standard calendar (it's fairly long from top to bottom when opened up, so be sure you have a lot of wallspace). The desktop calendar is a 7"x7" calendar with a built-in tripod to rest on your desk. Both calendars contain the same vintage program art.
If you're looking for a Christmas gift idea for a friend or family member or you just like to look at vintage program art (which is generally much more aesthetically interesting than the photos or photo collages that they tend to use today), this calendar can be a fun little gift idea. And even if you don't care much about the calendar aspect, if you just want some cool vintage Iowa program art to hang up, this is an economical way to get several frame-worthy prints of vintage Iowa program art (the art can be easily detached from the rest of the calendar) to decorate your home or office walls.
The fine folks at Asgard Press have also taken the liberty of offering a discount to BHGP readers who are interested in the calendar. If you'd like to purchase a Vintage Iowa (or any other Asgard Press calendar) at a 10% discount, you can do it two ways:
