Desk Calendars

Postby Jinx » Thu Oct 16, 2008 12:05 pm

Does anyone know if there are any Discworld desk calendars? You know those day a page tear-away style calendars?

Though I'll be gone from this job in the new year, chances are I'll find myself in another desk job (at least for a while). It's one of the few personal items I can get away with on my desk. Last year I had a Gary Lawson calendar and this year I've got a Simpsons one, but I'd really love to have a Discworld one for next year.

I'm not holding much hope, though a google search shows there has been at least one in the past.

I think I had the one there was some years ago. Like with all desk calendars, I always forgot to tear off the pages. But I'm sure I would buy it if there was one.

They did do two desk calendars back in the ninties, cant remember the exact years but none ever since, all you can get now are the hanging types.
