I love Lia Leendertz’s annual seasonal almanac guides! They are one of my bestselling gifts every year as they are such beautiful inspirational books. They help you to reconnect with the seasons with a month-by-month guide to the world around us – including key dates, tide tables and garden tasks; constellations and moon phases; sunrises, folk songs, seasonal recipes and more. The 2024 edition is the seventh in the series, and has a theme of ‘the garden’, with beautiful illustrations by artist Aitch.
The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2024 gives you the tools and inspiration you need to celebrate, mark and appreciate each month of the year in your own particular way. Divided into the 12 months, a set of tables each month gives it the feel and weight of a traditional almanac, providing practical information that gives access to the outdoors and the seasons, perfect for expeditions, meteor-spotting nights and beach holidays. There are also features on each month’s unique nature, with this instalment following the swirling micro world of the garden pond through the year.
You will find yourself referring to The Almanac all year long, revisiting it again and again, and looking forward to the next edition as the year draws to a close. This 2024 edition is another beautiful edition, with it’s beautifully illustrated hardback cover – one of my favourite covers so far! It makes the perfect gift for any nature lover and a great stocking filler too!
