Patented Nov. 18, 1941 UNITED STATES PATENT GFFICE CALENDAR POST CARDS Ludwig Wissman, Baltimore, Md.

Application September 5, 1940, Serial No. 355,515

1 Claim.

The invention relates to a combination post card and calendar, and it consists in the constructions, arrangements and combinations here in described and claimed.

It is the cardinal object of the invention to provide a calendar having a plurality of leaves, each of which includes a pictorial scene detachable from the leaf, the pictorial scene having suitable printed matter on its reverse side, such as embodied on post cards generally.

It is a specic object of the invention to provide a combination calendar and post card in which the calendar may be detached without disturbing the scenic post card, and thus maintain the post card intact until required for use.

It is a still further object of the invention to provide a post card which may be readily detached from the leaf, in a manner to insure a clean marginal edge upon the card, as well as to expose the pictorial scene immediately therebeneath within the opening formed by removal of the rst card, thereby insuring the constant presentation of a scene during the life of the calendar.

Additional objects, advantages and features of invention Will be apparent from the following description considered in conjunction with the accompanying drawing, wherein Figure 1 is a plan view of a calendar constructed in accordance with my invention.

Figure 2 is a similar view with the rst post card removed.

Figure 3 is a plan View of the reverse side of the post card calendar.

Figure 4 is a vertical section through the calendar.

Referring to the drawing, there is illustrated a calendar generally indicated by the reference character IG, which comprises a series of twelve leaflets II detachably connected to a binder I2. The leaflets I I are preferably scored along a horizontal line I3 to permit detachment from the binder I2, although other approved means may be employed.

The leaflets I I are also scored along a horizontal line Ill, and preferably the line of scoring will be inedially of the length of the leaflets II in order to give a well balanced appearance, but obviously, this is not arbitrary. The lower portion I5 of the leaflets will have printed or otherwise formed thereon the calendar proper I6, one for each month of the year.

From the construction so far described. it will be seen that the leaflets I I may be detached from the binder I2 as a unit, after expiration of the current month, or if desired, the calendar I6 may be detached from the leaflet II by separation along the scored line I4, leaving the scenic portion I'I integral with the binder I2 for detachment when it is desired to use the post card I8.

As shown in Figure 1, the post card I8 of each leaf is bordered by a perforated line I9, permitting ready detachment of the card I8 from the scenic portion II. The line of perforations I9 are arranged and spaced so that when the card I8 is detached the dimensions of the card will be such as to meet the requirements of the post oiiice regulations, and to this end the reverse side of the card will bear appropriate printed matter.

It will be obvious that I have provided a calendar having a dual function, namely, the provision of a calendar having leaets, each of which embodies a month of a year and a scenic portion which is constructed for use as a post card.

Should occasion arise where need for a post card is presented, it will be understood that the post card I8 occurring on the current month may be removed by merely detaching the card along the perforated lines I9, as shown in Figure 2, when the pictorial or other scene on the following month leaflet will be disclosed within the opening 20 defined by removal of the post card. Thus there will be always a scene displayed, since the post cards I8 of the various leaflets will be aligned and in superposed relation.

While I have shown and described a preferred construction, this is by way of illustration only, and I consider as my own all such modifications in structure as fairly fall within the scope of the appended claim.

I claim:

In a calendar, a binder, a plurality of leaves arranged in superposed relation and detachable therefrom, each leaf having a weakened line approximately medially of its length, dividing the leaf into a scenic portion adjacent the binder and a calendar portion outwardly of the scenic portion, each of the scenic portions being arranged in superposed alinement, and a weakened border circumscribing the scenic portion whereby removal of the uppermost scenic portion will expose the scenic portion of the following leaf in the opening formed by removal of the first scenic portion.
