Unlike the previous two calendars, this one highlights books from a single publisher, Vancouver's Simply Read Books. The dozen monthly illustrations, which are reproduced in a smaller format on the calendar's back cover, are taken from 11 recent Simply Read titles. While the CCBC's and the OLA's calendars used the “flip-open” style, Simply Read's uses the “flip-over” approach so that the illustration and calendar portion are contained on a single vertical page that is 46 cm. long x 33 cm. wide (18 ins. x 13 ins.). Printed on heavy matte paper, the illustrations take up most of the page, with the calendar portion found at the very bottom. While some people like the days of the month to have a space connected with them so that the calendar can be used as a place for “notes-to-self re. appointments, etc,” such is not the case with this calendar.
