Would you like beautiful SCA artwork on your walls? Want to explain what you do on your weekends to relatives? Show a friend why they should come to an event? Support the East? The 2015 Labors of the East calendar will do all this, and you have the chance to write a dedication for one of the months.
The calendar (and also sets of note cards) will be sold starting in October to support the Royal Travel Fund. Each month features original calligraphy and illumination illustrating an SCA activity and a humorous poem written by Master Christian von Jaueregk.
Want to dedicate the courtly love month to someone special? Perhaps your fighting household would like the month for Pennsic or a guild would like the month about their art? There will be space on each month for a dedication message and the name of the person or group sponsoring it.
Sponsorship is $100 per month. If you’re interested, contact Lady Lucie Lovegood of Ramisgate (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mistress Catrin o’r Rhyd For (email@example.com). The subject of each month is listed below with its artists.
