We have prepared a new Šechtl & Voseček Museum of Photography Calendar for the year 2009. This year we have chosen vertically oriented photographs, showing life and buildings of the old town of Tábor in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. All photographs have been prepared from original negatives from our archives, and paying great attention to quality of reproduction.

Calendars will be available from the end of August 2008, from the usual outlets. However, larger orders (for more than 10 copies) may be ordered directly from us. We are also able to imprint calendars with the logo of your company or organisation (on card stock paper 5cm longer than the calendar itself). The cost of such personalised calendars is 130Kč.
