Known as peaceful and industrious creatures, bees reward their keepers with everything from increased garden bounty to jars of golden honey. full of fun factoids and gorgeous photographs, the Bee Happy wall calendar is a celebration of bees and everything about them – the flowers that feed them, the hives that house them, and the universal benefits they bestow on humankind.

The Sacred Celtic Sites wall calendar will take you on a magical journey to the most hallowed places on the celtic landscape. mara freeman, an expert on Celtic spiritual and sacred traditions, guides you through timeless monuments that are as aweinspiring today as they must have been millennia ago.

Sample text: The island of Saint Michael’s Mount in southwest Cornwall was once part of the mainland, a craggy rock rising above a dense forest. Its original name was the White Rock in the Wood, and it was said to have been the home of the giant Cormoran, who piled up the rocks. He would often wade ashore to steal farmers’ cows and sheep until being finally dispatched by Jack the Giant Killer.

POETRY

BY

NICHOLAS K IRSTEN-HONSHIN

The Zen Cat wall calendar is a meditation in art and words on the sacredness and interconnectedness of all life. artist and author nicholas kirsten-honshin uses painting and poetry to communicate a message from the pure heart of the universe. In Honshin’s own words, here is the story as it happened: “While I was quietly reading the Lotus sutra, the original Zen cat, miss kitty, climbed onto my lap. As I continued to read, I became aware that her mind and mine were becoming one. She wanted me to read aloud to her. So I did. There she sat in meditation, focused on the teachings as I read. Her appreciation and obvious understanding opened my own mind and heart to the oneness that exists, connecting all living beings in the gentle love and compassion that is in every precious moment.” The Meditational Art of Nicholas KirstenHonshin greeting cards are also available. for more information, visit www.amberlotus.com.

BY

SILAS TOBALL

The poems of Hafiz, the esteemed fourteenthcentury Sufi poet, are among the timeless treasures of world literature. In his native Persia – modern Iran – Hafiz is as alive and accessible today as he was to his contemporaries. Rather than being seen as stuffy classical literature from the remote past, the work of Hafiz is cherished as wisdom from a dear and intimate friend. His ecstatic love songs celebrate the beauty of the Beloved and playfully illuminate the sacredness of the world. These modern versions, from A Year With Hafiz: Daily Contemplations by Daniel Ladinsky, bring to life all the tenderness, wit and lyrical beauty of the original verses. The poetry is paired with stunning collage artwork by Silas Toball of Duirwaigh Studios, whose lush imagery and rich color palette are influenced by the venerable tradition of Persian miniatures with a decidedly contemporary touch. The Hafiz wall calendar is a jewel box of beauty and inspiration, honoring the relevance and reach of this ageless poet.

STEAMPUNK THE ART

OF

K AZUHIKO NAKAMURA from its early beginnings in the 1980s, steampunk has evolved from a little-known subgenre of science fiction into a cultural phenomenon. As a literary tradition, it pays homage to the worlds envisioned by writers like H. G. Wells and Jules Verne, where anachronistic machines shape human destiny in steam-powered visions of alternate realities. As a design aesthetic, it is heavily influenced by surrealism and cyberpunk. Steampunk combines the historical with the futuristic, mingling straitlaced Victorian-era sensibilities with space-age technology. Think red velvet curtains and mahogany paneling, and then add a heavy sprinkling of spy gadgets and time travel. from books and movies to fashion and art, the Steampunk movement has made an indelible mark on contemporary popular culture. The Steampunk wall calendar features the stunning artwork of Kazuhiko nakamura, whose provocative mingling of man and machine epitomizes the jarring juxtapositions at the heart of the Steampunk aesthetic.

OF THE

SUGAR SKULLS

DEAD

The Mexican celebration of the Day of the Dead has entered mainstream popular culture with a colorful splash, with images of sugar skulls appearing on everything from apparel to jewelry and tattoos. The art of handcrafting sugar skulls and decorating them with colorful paint and sparkling embellishments has been passed down through generations of folk artists. In Day of the Dead celebrations, these small sculptures serve as gifts to the living and adorn the altars of the deceased. Art inspired by the sugar-skull tradition is abundant and diverse. Contemporary artists draw on this rich tradition while demonstrating a remarkable variety of artistic styles. With their toothy grins and bold hues, the sugar skulls featured in the Day of the Dead wall calendar not only pay homage to the ancestors but are also a vibrant tribute to life and this living folk tradition.

Since the dawn of civilization, human beings have recognized and responded to the pull of sacred ground. It is an intrigue that transcends the boundaries of religion, ethnicity and geography. All cultures have sacred places, as diverse as the societies that sanctify them, where people encounter and commune with the divine. It may be a house of worship or a place in nature. It may be sacred by virtue of its natural properties or made so through ritual and tradition. The On Sacred Ground wall calendar pays homage to the holy ground of the world’s great religions. from a remote buddhist monastery clinging to the cliffs of Bhutan to the colorful vaulted ceilings of a nineteenth-century mosque, each month you will be transported to a mystical site where spirit dwells. However divergent, all religions have a common ground in sacred ground, in the practice of consecrating places for spiritual awakening and building monuments in praise of the divine.

ENVIRONMENTAL ART CONTEMPORARY ART

IN THE

NATURAL WORLD As one of the most exciting art movements of our time, environmental art celebrates our connection to the natural world through beauty, science, metaphor and ecological restoration. It encompasses a surprising landscape of approaches, from ephemeral “art in nature” sculptures designed to last only a few hours before returning to the earth, to communitybased “eco-art” installations, which clean up polluted watersheds and promote public understanding of local and global environmental issues. The projects featured in the Environmental Art wall calendar provide a sampling of some of the latest developments in this field to stimulate the imagination and promote the role of art in the creation of a more sustainable world culture.

The term “Tree Hugger” has been wholeheartedly embraced by eco-conscious citizens, environmentalists and other arboreal admirers. Proud of their inclinations to embrace these awe-inspiring giants, some tree huggers have even allowed themselves to be photographed in the act. With global deforestation continuing at breakneck speed, there has never been a better time to grab a tree and hold on tight. The forests of the world provide essential habitat for countless species, including human beings. They provide us with the very air we breathe. There are a lot of good reasons to love trees, whether for their majesty and diversity as living creatures or because of their crucial role in the global ecosystem. Whatever your reason, the Tree Huggers wall calendar will affirm your tree-hugger status and remind us all of our admiration for these stately neighbors while taking a whimsical look at our ongoing love affair with them.

LAND ART

MARTIN HILL ENVIRONMENTAL SCULPTURE Since the late 1960s, artists in the Land Art movement have been creating art in nature, composed primarily of the natural elements available at hand. Materials such as rocks, leaves and water are the medium, and the terrain is the canvas. Intentionally impermanent, these works are created and then left to change, erode and eventually be reclaimed by the elements. The Land Art wall calendar presents the work of environmental artist Martin Hill, whose ephemeral sculptures articulate his sustainable design philosophy. Hill recognizes that our human lifestyles have become unsustainable and that this can only be reversed through better design informed by the way nature works. He uses circular forms and processes that reflect nature’s cyclical system, the principles of which are now being used by some as a model for industrial ecology. Hill works with natural materials gathered from the site so that his sculptures can be absorbed back into the natural cycle without harm, transformed in time by natural processes into biological nutrients from which new life will grow.

These days all sorts of city dwellers are raising chickens: animal lovers prize them as pets, locavores and slow food enthusiasts dig the fresh eggs, and environmentalists see chickens as part of a sustainable lifestyle. Even kids are getting in on the fun! The benefits of this trend are egg-straordinary, and having garden-fresh eggs – blue- or buff-shelled with deep-yellow yolks, tender whites and rich flavor – is just one of them. With colorful photography by Susan Seubert, the whimsical City Chickens & their Coops wall calendar features twelve months of feathered friends and their distinctive digs. from contemporary to classical, these mini manors feature recycled and reclaimed building materials and sustainable innovations such as green roofs. These beaked buddies and their clever, quirky coops will keep your feathers fluffed all year long.

Sample text: Given chickens’ prehistoric survival tendencies and behaviors, the owners thought it fitting that the coop art reflect the ladies’ T. rex alter egos. The fruit trees and Japanese maple serve as favored roosting spots for this large free-range flock.

The Green Patriot wall calendar is a collection of outstanding contemporary posters promoting sustainability and the fight against climate change. These dynamic posters, which never rest on the tired slogans of the past (“Save the Earth,” etc.), show that graphic design does not passively respond to the zeitgeist – it helps shape it. The calendar is based on the book Green Patriot Posters, published by Metropolis Books in association with The Canary Project and the Environmental defense fund. the inspiration for the project first came from the WPA (Works Progress Administration) and posters from the World War II era, when transforming consumption habits and conserving became patriotic. The work in this collection is a rallying cry, a potent tool for communication and social transformation.

CELTIC BLESSINGS ILLUMINATIONS

BY

MICHAEL GREEN It is an often overlooked fact that Celtic art is iconic for two very different worldviews: primeval Christianity and paganism / new age. celtic art and spirituality stand on an overlap between these two cultures and act as connecting links between them. Both cultures can learn from their differences, ultimately supporting and nourishing the spiritual aspirations of each. Michael Green’s Celtic Blessings wall calendar is a masterful marriage of these two worlds. Based on Celtic themes and early Irish Christian illuminated manuscripts, Green’s art reenvisions these genres into a stunning modern look that is firmly rooted in the past. At various times in his life, Green has been a wandering monk, artist and craftsman, television art director, architect, illustrator and author. His books include The I Ching Journals, The Illuminated Rumi, The Illuminated Prayer and The Unicornis Manuscripts. Celtic Blessings greeting cards are also available. for more information, visit www.amberlotus.com.

And so it is the human spirit circles ever closer round a still and silent center!

Everything moves in a circle. Lodges in a village are arranged in a circle. When the mothers in a buffalo herd must protect their young, they form themselves in a powerful circle, shoulder to shoulder and facing outward, with their children inside. The seasons cycle continuously, the sun and the moon are round, as is the Earth. The circle is strength – it is balance.

ALICE K ELLEY

fractals are the visual depictions of mathematical equations – the same equations, in fact, that describe natural phenomena such as coastlines, plant shapes and weather patterns. A computer program assigns a color to each point in the image based on the answers to a chosen equation, which then results in abstract fractal shapes. Dozens of variables are manipulated in order to create these fascinating images. The Fractal Cosmos wall calendar features the organic designs of alice kelley, who says, “fractals are an intuitive glimpse into the infinite order that composes the natural world, as well as being proof that math is beautiful.”

Appreciating the many gifts that happen every day – hearing a chirping bird, feeling the wind on our face – reminds us to not take ourselves too seriously. These modest treasures are an enormous help in lightening the load we all carry. In the Living in Gratitude wall calendar, Cori Dantini’s charming art embodies the idea of appreciating these life-affirming details. Using a mixed-media palette of paint and collaged ephemera, she creates delightful story-vignettes that inspire us to stop and smell the roses all year long.

The emergence of the People’s Republic of China and its occupation of Tibet beginning in the mid-twentieth century opened Tibet to the outside world and brought us more images of tibetans. nonetheless, tibetans and their plight still remain significantly shrouded by Chinese government policies that restrict freedom of movement and speech, and access to foreign visitors.
