ArtyDidact's Shop Announcement

Arty Didact features cards, zines, journals, bookplates and calendars, plus quirky mini artifacts for grown-ups and little treasure boxes for children — stocking stuffers for playful adults and intelligent kids!

The new 2016 Useful Calendar is now available in two formats, with two more soon to come. Ready now: an 11x17 poster calendar and a wee pocket calendar in booklet form for your purse or pocket. The theme this year is bees, and the poster features the Mayan stingless honeybee, xunan kab ("royal lady"), while the pocket calendar has two bees. See them in the "calendar" section of my shop.

Two additional calendar formats will feature 12 bees: calendar cards for your desk, and a hand-bound almanac/diary with extra notes and space for your own jottings. Also forthcoming — a calendar zine with loads of fun and fascinating info about world holidays.
