These unique Advent calendars from British illustrator Angela Harding are something special. Along with her superb linocut block prints—full of wildlife, cozy cottages, and snowy winter woods—they feature die-cut side panels that unfold to let them stand up on a table or shelf, while each opened window adds something new to the scene. Whether horizontal or vertical, the calendars measure nearly 15½ ? 11¾ inches and include a white cardboard envelope, for storage or for mailing to a loved one.
Three big bunnies keep a lookout on the edge of a snow-covered village here, while pheasant and grouse seek berries in the undergrowth. The calendar includes two extra die-cut birds to stand up nearby.
