I was looking for a beautiful, original and practical calendar. That has been done. I am delighted! Great for sending.
These calendars are amazing. I had one last year and will keep it. The quality is great and exactly what I expected. My daughter follows the astrology advice on hers and says it's unsettlingly accurate! It's so sad that the artist has since died. RIP Ralph
Such a cool piece! The paper's brown instead of white, but I think it adds to the aesthetic
Just got my calendar today, right before the Chinese New Year. It's beautiful, and well illustrated.
