The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2024 by Lia Leendertz
We Say: A pocket cache of knowledge, folklore and more, this engaging guide has all the practical information of a regular almanac, plus so much more. A folk story for each month, recipes served up with a good helping of background traditions, high days and holidays both new and old. There are lovely recipes for elderflower mead and twelfth-night biscuits we can't wait to try. Sprinkled throughout with cheerful woodcut-style folk-art illustrations, thoughtfully compiled and beautifully presented. If you are looking for that special gift, this could be it !
The Publisher Says: This reinvention of the rural almanac enables you to celebrate, mark and appreciate the changes of the year in your own way. A set of tables for each month gives it the appearance of a traditional almanac; these provide practical information ideal for expeditions, night-time excursions and beach holidays. There are also features on each month's unique nature, such as the meteor shower of the month, beehive behaviour, folklore, seasonal recipes and charts tracking moon phases and tides. The perfect toolkit for connecting with the world around us throughout the year.
