A Date with 2018

Maybe wall calendars are making a come-back? I do hope so. I like wearing a watch too, and having a clock on the wall! 
This year it was a lovely surprise to see so many people colouring wall calendars and there are few good reasons to colour one.


- firstly, it's not as big a colouring job as colouring an entire book.
- often the artist and publisher have selected the most popular images to go in the calendar.
- you know that you have a colouring goal each month.
- a wall calendar makes a lovely colouring gift as it's not as overwhelming as a book.


Johanna Basford, Leila Duly and Daisy Fletcher calendars will be published on good quality paper that will take pencils. I expect Pomegranate publishers to have done likewise as they produce colouring books too. However when you're buying, watch out for calendars printed on shiny paper as you will only be able to use makers on them. Sadly most calendars are shrink-wrapped so it can be impossible to tell the quality of the paper.

So, here are the colouring calendars for 2018 that have caught my eye. At the bottom are the two Johanna Basford diaries/planners.
