5.0 out of 5 stars back to the classics 27 Aug 2010
By Su TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Calendar
If you (like I) have missed the old Discworld covers by the late Josh Kirby then this calendar will fill you with joy.

Some of the most famous covers are included along with 4 "new" pieces of Discworld art. These images have been seen before if you are a Kirby fan, but it is only when you have them in front of you, in beautiful colour, that you realise the work and detail that went into each of them and you feel the loss of Mr Kirby again.

Covers are: Fifth Elephant; Thief of Time; Witches Abroad; Pyramids; The Truth; Carpe Jugulum; Equal Rites and Hogfather. Also included is the first version of Moving Pictures cover, along with Discworld Noir; Unseen University and Ankh Morpork.

The "Witches" seem to be the predominate group in the calendar, even though they have only 3 of the pictures (Witches Abroad, Carpe Jugulum, and Equal Rites), no other group (the "Watch", Rincewind, the UU boys or Death) has more (or an equal number of) images.

I have great hopes that they will continue with this theme over the next couple of years and a specific group will have the majority images supported by some of the less well known work of Mr Kirby.

The calendar has day squares (if you really want to write on it) and gives you those special day reminders, including the usual prompt for wearing the lilac on the "glorious 25th".

Once again the Discworld calendar is a pleasure to have in my collection. It's just superb.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic 9 Jan 2014
By C. Hull
Format:Calendar
I am so excited to have this on my wall.
I have been waiting 2 years for it to come down in price enough to afford it. Now that it is 2 off, I can get this and send it to Gretta.
She is a big fan of Dragons and things so she will love it.
She will be able to look back on 2012 and re live it day by day with this handy reminder of a vintage year in the Snow Lands of the north.

5.0 out of 5 stars first class 4 Nov 2011

First class as usual with any thing to do with Pratchett. The images in the calender are the same as the images created by my imagination when reading his books. A must buy for any Pratchett lover.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another year, another great calendar! 6 Mar 2011
Format:Calendar|Verified Purchase
and this time it's illustrated by Paul Kidby! the artwork is done in the same vein as the classic paperback covers, so it's a dream come true for those who love Kidby but are too cheap to buy official prints (like me :P)

3.0 out of 5 stars Discworld Calendar 2011. Collectors Edition 14 Feb 2011
Format:Calendar
The Calendar was despatched and received ok. The Calendar was smaller than expected and was not the size as previous ones. The pictures were not new and have been seen before. Overall though, its still serving its purpose on the wall.

It was ok, but honestly I was expecting illustrations from different books. My rating is very subjective as I just wanted more illustrations from witches series
