KALendar update…

Joy and excitement as The Economist calendar arrived from the States this morning. An illustrated look at the year ahead – written and illustrated by the cartooning legend that is Kevin KAL Kallaugher.

I wrote about it briefly before, but at the time I hadn’t actually seen more than the little previews on KAL’s website. I’ve finally had a chance to look at all 12 months up close, and it’s fantastic!
The main illustration every month refers to about a dozen wildly different current and historical events, all put together in miraculously coherent scene.
In addition there are other little relevant drawings sprinkled around the written part of the calendar.

KAL himself also features on every page of this calendar – in good “Where’s Wally?” style – usually reading a copy of the Economist.

It’s a terrific piece of work, and really I can’t recommend it enough.
A brilliant gift for anyone interested in cartoons!
