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.
I always found the Kirby covers very childish and they initially put me off buying my first Discworld book. So I'll have to ask Grandma for something different this year.
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.
