I enjoyed designing them too - the best bit was spending most of the year tracking down rare pictures from various archives and vaults


And a brilliant job you did there Jaz! Very Happy I've kept all the old calendars from 1998. I think there's 14 if I remember correctly. Terrific photos, some quite rare. I also loved the miniature photos and bits of info surrounding the dates. Cool I spent a happy hour looking through them all this week. I really hope we see their return one day, but I know it's a copywrite issue. Sad Rich.

Nothing really to do with copyright - more to do with very poor sales and you can't go on producing a product where you barely break even.

Oh dear, that's even worse than I thought. I was thinking it was because Canal had the rights to all images. Poor sales means there's no hope of their returning. Sad

From the sales figures, most people waiting until the calendars were in the sale, reduced to something like 2.99 before buying it. So sales got gradually worse, retailers stopped stocking titles they were losing money on and the whole calendar market was saturated by hundreds of different titles. I doubt we'll see the calendar again.
