- The beautiful pictures (9x12 inches!) of Russia are printed on thick, glossy stock to make every photo pop
- The date pages are printed on normal white stock, to make jotting down notes and appointments (in the nice, large date spaces) smudge free
- Spiral-bound with quality, double-ring wire – this makes it durable, plus lets it lay flat against the wall
- Over 200 important historical dates with "round" anniversaries
- Major Russian Orthodox, Western Christian, Jewish, Islamic and Buddhist holidays
- National holidays of both Russia and the US, including most notable Russian professional days
- Main Canadian and UK holidays
- Phases of the moon
- Months and days of the weeks are bilingual, all else is in English only
- Printed on post-consumer recycled paper, FSC certified
In short, a great gift idea for others and yourself!
About the Photographer: Sergei Ershov was born and raised in Moscow. Like many photographers, he got his start with a cheap film camera that he received as an early birthday present. He has been seriously developing his photographic hobby since 2005; his day job is in a large IT company in the capital. He specializes in cityscapes and landscape photography, seeking to capture a thought, a moment, an interesting composition of light. While he prefers to shoot in Russia, he frequently travels with his camera to Europe and the Far East. He blogs online at sergey-ershov.livejournal.com.
