Reviews - What do customers think about Gil Elvgren, Pin-ups 2007 Calendar (Diaries)?
Besides the Monday vs Sunday debacle... Feb 19, 2008
I loved using this book and was disappointed to see that all the existing reviews were so emphatically swayed by what day started the week. The paintings are playful and full of humor, and there is one for every week. It was a great conversation piece, and all my friends wanted it for their own. The spiral binding maintained its shape, and the plastic cover and back kept it from getting ratty in my purse. It's kitschy enough that you won't offend anyone and is workplace friendly... My copy (2004 edition) had only one painting that would earn over a PG rating (featured bare boobs), and it was the first image after the title page and not designated a week of the year. All around a great calendar... but it's from Taschen, so what did you expect?
FINALLY Jan 18, 2007
First the pin-ups are gorgeous ... and there is plenty of eoom ro write anything that you might have going on in the "day" section. For me the best thing about this ... is that it actually begins on MONDAY! Yeah, yeah, I know that Sunday is the "real" beginning of the week, but for me it is at the end -- work etc ... starts on MONDAY
LOVE THE!!!!! Aug 28, 2004
FINALLY...a calendar that starts the week on a MONDAY! Oh, I don't know how I survived before I found it. Perhaps I will make it to 2006 because of this...wish me luck.
Shoulda bought another Apr 24, 2004
I shoulda bought Avalanche Publishing's calendar of the same name. It features the same artist but starts on Sunday, the way a calendar should be! I'll remember for next year...
would NOT have bought this calendar if I had known... Jan 8, 2004
The pictures are great. The size & the paper quality etc is just like every other wall calendar sold in America. HOWEVER... when you look at this calendar, the first column is for Monday, with the week ending on Sunday... all my other wall calendars begin on Sunday and end on Saturday. The layout is going to create problems for me so I went from giving a 5 rating to giving a 1 rating.
