Calendars and Planners for 2019

July is the traditional month for 2019 colouring calendars to be released. So far, the field seems to be mostly Johanna Basford creations, but if I track down any others, I'll add them in. It pays to order soon as these items have sold out in the past and I rue the day I didn't order a Brunelleschi calendar last year.
