Most Helpful Customer Reviews
We've been receiving the Smithsonian Engagement Calendar as a benefit of our annual Friends of Smithsonian membership for a number of years. The format is one week per 2-page fold with a photograph of an item from the Smithsonian collections on the opposite page. The spiral binding allows the calendar to lay flat on your desk in either the 2-page configuration, or folded back to reveal just one page. At 6.8 x 9 inches it doesn't take up much space on your desk and can also be carried in a handbag or briefcase. Though I use Google Calendar so that I get appointment reminders on my Android smart phone, I also like to have a paper calendar on my desk to jot down events and activities - sort of like a mini-journal. At year end I like to flip back through it to remind myself of major events and trips throughout the year.
There doesn't seem to be any unifying theme for the images that are included, but they are interesting and well photographed. There is a small blurb to describe...
I have been using the Smithsonian calendars for years. They have a good amount of space for daily notes for my needs and more room in the back for anything else. The size is perfect for me, and I like the illustrations, as well. I tried using others, but always come back to these.
Pretty calendar with good variety of art work.
