Marjolein's artwork is incredible, just beautiful. This is just what I needed : a section for a look at the month, then a weekly calendar with plenty of space for each day. All of this with artwork on each page. It will be a great year as I have these beautiful paintings to refresh me daily.
Cons: textured paper hard to write on., weeks start on monday., not enough note pages at back
The pictures are beautiful. The inscriptions are interesting. The paper is good quality. That said, I will not be purchasing this particular calendar again. There are four main reasons: 1. Most of the paper has a texture that makes it difficult to write on. 2. The calendar pages begin on Monday rather than on Sunday like weeks REALLY begin. 3. There are not enough pages at the back for notes for the following year. 4. The month calendars are ALL at the beginning of the book rather than each month's calendar being immediately preceding the weekly calendar pages for that month.
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials, beautiful artwork
For several years now I have made it a point to purchase Lang engagement planners because I really like the dual format, i.e. in the front twelve monthly calendars and then the weekly format. No need for a wall calendar as the monthly format serves the purpose of a wall calendar for keeping track of events, birthdays etc. Also, I love the quality & artwork of the Lang engagement planners. Marjolein Bastin is one of my favorite artists.

Pros: High Quality Materials, beautiful artwork, perfect overall size
Cons: see my review for the con
however, I prefer to have the thumbnail monthly calendar for the previous month, current month, & next month on each weekly page. This particular Lang calendar only gives you the current month so I find myself having to flip back & forth often. I returned this calendar & will select another Lang engagement calendar of this size (which I love) that has the months on each weekly page. Had a good "view" pic been shown, I would have known to order differently in the first place!
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials, attractive, well organized, plenty of writing space, holds up beautifully under daily use, lots of beautiful pictures, well worth the price
I have used Marjolein Bastin Nature Journal Engagement Calendars for the last three years. They are the perfect size for my home desk or to take with me, when necessary.
The drawings are lovely! There are many, many paintings and all of them are different and new each year. I find them light-hearted and uplifting.
I love having a choice between the monthly calendar and the weekly. There is plenty of room on each day of the weekly calendar to keep track of my varied schedule.
The back pocket is useful to keep appointment cards and notes.
After using each of my calendar journals every day for an entire year, I find the journals are still in great shape. The covers are still intact, the pages never come out and the spiral binding is strong. I keep them around for future reference, but also because I hate to toss the pictures out!
I wholeheartedly recommend these spiral bound calendars.
Pros: Makes A Great Gift, High Quality Materials, great price
I purchased this journal,calendar for appointments, birthdays, and other important engagements. When I received it I was so happy with it. I can't wait to start using it. It has multiple areas to keep reminders, notes, and other information. Above all it makes me happy to look at! The pictures are beautiful, soothing, peaceful, what more could you ask for! It was a great purchase too!
I've always been a fan of Marjolein Bastin's greeting cards, as all my friends who have received them know. But now I have something to enjoy all year with wonderful illustrations and explanations each week. So glad I found this calendar.
I love Marjolein Bastin's work. She has a gift for capturing the beauty of nature in minute detail. I am an avid gardener. During the winter months here in the northeast, it is a pleasure to enjoy lovely flowers and birds each week as I turn the pages of my calendar.
I love this engagement calendar! I had the same one last year, but could not find it in stores this year. Appreciated that the store employee in Portland Lloyd Center referred me to the website and gave me the code for free shipping.
