Happy Aloha~♥ Friday!!
The past work week’s been pretty exhausting (゜ロ゜ノ)ノ！！ (an understatement!) and I’ve had so little time for the internet as outside of work and daily errands most of my ‘free’ time’s been dedicated to that wonderful time known as sleep!!! ( 」´０｀)」Zzzzzzzz Not much else has changed here as it’s still very warm/hot and even at nighttime which means fans..fans…fans running all night (-∀-`)。
While I had originally planned to include Miura Rieko’s calendar with a hopefully sometime upcoming CoCo post (which remains half done), today I decided not to wait that long so here tonight we’ll be taking a look back at her calendar from way back in 1997.
All Japanese wall hanging calendars back then and up to just recently were bonded together atop by a single metal clasp, today’s wall calendars are now opting for an all paper top binding which is also now perforated making removal of each page most convenient. In the past one would either choose to simply fold each calendar page over creasing them atop to reveal the next pair of months as the year went by or you could also have chosen to cut them across the top severing them permanently from the top metal clasp and as always with the designed nature of Japanese idol wall calendars they really make for some of the very best posters when the year is done as the calendar (months/days) portion has always been relatively most tiny making each page’s image the prime real estate owner~.
Miura Rieko had been a member of the idol group CoCo and by the year 1997 they had been disbanded for nearly two and a half years which is a testament to her popularity as she still commanded a solo idol calendar even then. This calendar makes for one of my most treasured idol collectibles as both CoCo and Miura Rieko were two of my earliest idol loves dating back to those days, and here she was photographed most gorgeously in a both glamorous and sexy image, just simply one of the prettiest idol calendars ever I think =).
