Every year Llewellyn brings out a uniquely illustrated wall calendar. The calendar pages are the least interesting part of this yearly offering, after all, not much changes from year to year. The draw is the monthly articles and the articles at the end of the calendar. The authors of these articles bring unusual views, as well as more mainstream thoughts to the topics they choose to write about it.

The illustrations are always executed in a “primitive” style which draws the eye and reveals unexpected depths. In a world which seems more and more to be a world of computer generated images, it is nice to see these images.

I know there are people who don’t like anything from assorted publishers (Llewellyn seems to draw a lot of that reaction, for whatever reason), but if you are willing to put aside such prejudice and actually read what is here, I think you will find it interesting and worth the price.
