A 2019 wildlife calendar that guides you through the seasons – each month has drawings and handwritten notes about what to look out for in the natural world – the birds and animals and flowers and insects that fill the countryside with fascinating movement. Each of the months has a different illustration. There’s goldfinches in January, a starfish in August, a sleeping fox in September, a hedgehog in October, and bullfinches in December. And, of course, it has the days and dates, all of which have been drawn by hand. The weekends are in a different colour to make it even easier to schedule your week.
The calendar is wire bound and ready to hang from a pin on the wall.
Size: 420mm long x 148mm wide.
In our house we rely on the calendar for making a note of appointments and plans, but some customers use the calendar to record the world around them – such as the first snowdrops or the arrival of the swallows. I know one customer who uses it to record the happenings on her farm.
Designing the calendar is one of my favourite tasks each year. I’m obsessed with tracking the changes in the seasons. I love learning about the countryside and it’s rhythms and understanding why the world around us acts the way it does throughout the year. If you love the changing seasons too, check out my monthly wildlife blog.
The calendar folds to A5 size: 148 x 210mm for posting. Your calendar will come in a protective 100% biodegradable cellophane envelope (you can even pop it in the compost bin!)
Need more space for the whole family? We’ve just launched the brand new 2019 Family Planner Calendar. You can also purchase a set of 12 Wild Months postcards – one postcard for each month of the year – in the shop.
ABOUT OUR PAPER GOODS
All our products are designed, manufactured and packaged by hand in Scotland. The calendar is printed on FSC certified paper stock which means it has been sourced sustainably. The original drawings are done by Hannah in pencil & watercolour. The designs are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. We believe it is important that people feel connected with the fields, hedgerows and woodlands around them. Only by loving and enjoying the countryside can we learn to care for it.
We are committed to finding environmentally responsible packaging solutions. Where possible, we use 100% biodegradable cellophane sleeves made from cornstarch. They are compostable – you can pop them in the compost bin or they will break down quickly in landfill. In addition, we try to use paper-based packing tapes, and recycled cardboard envelopes and boxes wherever possible. This is a process we are committed to continuing with in order to reduce our impact on this beautiful planet. If you would like your calendar, or any other product, to be sent without a protective cellophane then just leave us a note at the check out.
