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.
The only other review here claims that the manufacturing is bad. With all due respect, that is erroneous. I can understand why this was stated (yes, the holes ARE in the same place as a normal calendar designed to be hung top-down instead of widescreen), but rather then being a flaw, this is genius. I have been getting the Ships of the Line calendar since it came out in the mid-2000s, and a critical flaw of the calendar has always been having the holes on the tops, rather then the sides. Gravity pulls relentlessly at the hole itself (I had to tape it in some past years because the nail went right through it), and there is little way to address this, since holes at the top forces the nails/tacks to support ALL of the calendar's weight. This past year was the first where they moved the holes to the sides, and at first I thought "manufacturing error." HOWEVER, once I tried to hang it in "widescreen" using pushpins, I realized the genius of moving the holes.Read more ›
