The deadline for ordering East Kingdom calendars or note cards is November 6, one week away.  We’ve posted the final scans of all the artwork so you can see the unusual and beautiful contributions of the scribes of the East to the project.  Orders will ship at the end of November, so they will be available for holiday gift giving.  You can order yours at the project’s website.

If you would like to dedicate a month to someone who inspires you or send a message to the kingdom, a few months still need sponsors.  A sponsors’  message is printed on their month’s page, and they receive a complimentary calendar and set of note cards.  For more information, contact Baroness Lucie Lovegood.
