Late for Christmas? Maybe. So call this calendar a New Year's present

One of my most interesting friends is Rachael Clegg, an artist and art director whose calendars combine her own nude photos with TT history. So, my favorite subject. And I really like the TT, too.

Clegg's 'Milestone' calendars include funny, artful black and white photos–mostly nude or nearly so. They're not technically self-portraits; she art directs them but she works with a photographer (who, I'm sure, doesn't mind the assignment!) Most of the photos are shot at the exact spot where some moment from TT history happened.
Although the last time we spoke, Rachael admitted that she didn't even have a motorcycle license, she certainly comes by her TT interest honestly. Her grandfather raced on the Island, and so did her dad. She grew up in the paddock.

I can't believe that I've forgotten to write about Rachael's 2018 calendar until nine days before Christmas. That means, I suppose, that unless you're in the UK, it's too late to order one as a Christmas gift. But what the hell? It's a calendar; you can give it to anyone as a New Year's present.

Man-cave, garage, den... If you need one more gift for a TT fan, this calendar is it. Or, if you're that person, just buy it for yourself. She's also got T-shirts, mugs, and prints. Click on this calendar to go straight to her website, RachaelClegg.com.
