or something close. Strings of numbers in 3 rows is not what I expected when I purchased this calendar as a gift.
Additionally, there is no white space to write anything on the calendar, which is one of the main reasons to buy a wall calendar.
Choose something different if you want to actually be able to see the day of the week and the dates in the usual way they are displayed on a typical wall calendar. Choose this calendar only if you want to see beautiful artwork.
The images are beautiful. The art is superb, but as a calendar this is a total disaster.
It appears to be like every other calendar out there with a convenient hole to hang it up. When you open it you find that all of the images (again beautiful ones) are landscape oriented spanning across two pages. The "convenient" holes are now on the left and right of the images rather than on the top. How am I supposed to hang this exactly? The space I reserve for my calendar will not accommodate this thing, and now I need a level and two nails?
As if to rub salt in the wound, they also have decided that weeks as we know them no longer apply. Maybe because this is the future? The familiar 4-5 weeks grid we all know and love (or at least are accustomed to) has been thrown away in favor of simply listing out the days in a long row of values. Granted, this is to accommodate the art work, however I like my calendars to be both beautiful and functional.
As a calendar this thing sucks. As art it is great assuming you can hang it straight.
Also the calendar part is mostly an afterthought. Tiny little date charts stuck in the corners - they take up about about 1/9th of the space instead of 1/2. There is no room to write anything (like birthdays or doctors appointments) and if you could, it would have to be in white or silver so it would show up against the black of space.
I'm getting another calender to use, and keeping this as more of a "trek ship of the month art" wall hanging, which is really what it is.
This year has a couple months with so-so artwork though and that I will take a star off for. I don't expect, nor want, every month to have photo realistic looking computer generated 3D renderings but I do want stuff that looks professional. At least one month's drawing looks like it was made by a somewhat talented kid instead of a professional artist.
I still recommend this for fans of Star Trek ships.
