The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2023: THE SUNDAY TIMES BESTSELLER - The Almanac (Hardback)Lia Leendertz (author)
A brilliant compilation of lore, recipes, folk songs and the rhythms of the natural world, The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2023 provides an inspiring compass for the upcoming year, beautifully illustrated by arist Whooli Chen.
Reconnect with the seasons in Britain and Ireland with this 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 plus a 'bun of the month'; and - because 2023 will be a good year for planet spotting - the solar system and the zodiac.
The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2023 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 year's edition is illustrated by artist Whooli Chen.
