Cross & Cockade has released their 2020 calendar, and in keeping with past calendars, combines excellent W.W.I aviation art with the usual calendar functions. As in past years, you are advised to order your copy now, and not wait. There may be a limited supply of these calendars and you do not want to miss out because you waited until the supply ran out.

According to Roger Tisdale of Cross & Cockade, the profits from the sale of the 2020 Cross and Cockade International Calendar are once again going to assist in the upkeep of the British Air Services Memorial at the St-Omer airfield in northern France". This is a very worthy cause and deserving of your support. One can check out the St-Omer Memorial at http://www.webmatters.net/txtpat/?id=258

Besides the fact that you will be contributing to the upkeep and maintenance of this significant Memorial, the artwork is stunning. In fact, I keep my previous year's calendars displayed in a prominent location in my modeling area and the 2020 calendar will soon join those earlier calendars as "display" items. The artwork is definitely a motivating factor when working on W.W.I aircraft models. Consider it an early Christmas present you can give a friend, or yourself, for that matter.

The calendar is 81/2 inches by 12 inches. The pages are "bound" on a set of small metal rings that allow for each month to be flipped to the reverse side, thus keeping the calendar together rather than having to remove each month's page and discarding it. A small, sturdy mounting wire allows the calendar to be hung from a traditional picture hanger, a push pin, or a nail/screw head.

Each month features artwork as indicated by the chart copied from the C&C website. One of the pages in the calendar includes the name of each artist and a website featuring that artist's work and/or an email with which the artist can be contacted.
