This slimline wall calendar can be used every year to record important dates: birthdays, anniversaries, and even when your car insurance is due.  This perpetual calendar will last for years and years meaning you no longer have to write out birthdays into your new calendar every year.

The Field Notes Calendar is a collaboration with Glasgow-based poet Samuel Tongue combining verse and illustration to take you through a year in trees.  Each month is the page from a naturalist’s diary – his notes, his poetry and his sketches about the ash, hazel, rowan, sycamore and hawthorn, to name a few.

The calendar is wire bound and ready to hang from a pin on the wall.
Size:  420mm long x 148mm wide.

You can also find the illustrations from the Field Notes collection as a set of 12 postcards, one for each month of the year.


The calendars are printed by a local firm just 8 miles down the road then sent up to Edinburgh for finishing. The calendars are printed on FSC certified paper stock which means it has been sourced sustainably. The original drawings are done in pencil & watercolour. The designs are inspired by the rich variety of the British countryside. I 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.

    I have been looking for a perpetual calendar for a while but couldn’t find one that I’d like to look at each year. This one is lovely, a real treat for the eyes. Thank you Hannah.

    I hadn’t planned to buy a perpetual calendar having never been very good at that sort of thing, but the small wildlife calendar I’d come to buy was out of stock and I couldn’t resist this one in its place. (The wildlife calendar then came back into stock and I couldn’t resist buying it as well!) So one is in the kitchen and one by my desk. Having recently lost the second of my nature and garden-loving parents, who I was always asking for advice, I’m thinking now that I’ll use this not only for birthdays but for gardening notes of what I should be doing each month. It is lovely quality, good thickness of card, one page per month – not double sided, beautifully illustrated in keeping with the the time of year and with the bonus addition of lovely poetic words. I will enjoy this for many years, I’m sure. Thank you
