Fun, very basic monthly wall calendar 8 Jan. 2013
By Captainette - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Calendar Verified Purchase
I thought instead of an "inspiring" or "motivational" calendar for work, this year I'd get something just for fun. The days are marked with Beaton-selected notable dates and factoids (printed in black) as well as the usual government-recognized holidays (white). As shown in the Amazon previews, each month is illustrated by black & white reproductions of original comics. The color cover is a nice bonus but not an indication of what to expect inside.

One practical drawback: Until I started using this I didn't realize how much I used those tiny month-prior, month-after views (or even just the "ghost" dates on either side of the current month) to skip ahead or behind without turning the page. The current month view contains ONLY that... but I'm just using this to mark my time off and see what day it is. Another slight problem is the way the standard holidays are printed in white. On the Beethoven Birthday Party calendar, the grid background is yellow so the white text can be hard to read, especially when sharing space with black. However, I think the fluorescent office lighting contributes to this as much as the color combination.

For content it is 5 stars but as a calendar it is somewhat flawed, so overall it's 4 stars. I definitely would still buy it, since everything I bought it for is there (Hark! A Vagrant humor, smarts and goofiness) and the minor drawbacks mentioned are things I wouldn't factor into this type of purchase anyway. But, I mention them for people who would consider them.

Kate Beaton has the uncanny ability to take famous historical figures and make them just a little more human, not to mention hilarious.
