Spiral bound calendar, 12 month (one month per page) and artist list page

Every year we have so many choices of calendars to choose from but finding the perfect calendar can be a challenge. With the Cross & Cockade 2023 calendar, you get a calendar with beautiful prints in a perfect size of 11.7” (300mm) x 8.3” (210mm) with spiral binding so each month stays flat to the wall.

The 2023 calendar starts with January 2023 with one month per page. Each page has a beautiful illustration of WWI aviation with monthly calendar below. Each illustration and artist is listed on the last page of the calendar. There is another listing of each artist with their web site or email address.

With each calendar sold, the proceeds go to help maintain the British Air Services memorial at St Oliver and this calendar typically sells out each year. The calendar is now bearing a new name “The Great War Aviation Society”. Their mission is to explore, preserve and share information on this fascinating period, to make sure the aircraft, pilots, ground crew and their sacrifices are never forgotten.

I highly recommend this calendar for both the aircraft portraits and helping to fund the maintenance at the British Air Services Memorial at St Omer. My only recommendation on the calendar’s layout is it would be nice to list the subject and artist below each illustration. I would like to thank Cross & Cockade and IPMS/USA for this calendar to review.
