YEAR OF WONDERS
A modern take on the classic seasonal guide
Today’s version of a traditional country almanac has been updated to appeal to contemporary readers, with entries ranging from fragments of folklore to speciality cheeses. It charts the year by month, and provides a gentle reminder to celebrate what is often overlooked, from the first bluebells to the phases of the moon. cg ‘The Almanac: A Seasonal Guide to 2019’ by Lia Leendertz (£8.45, Mitchell Beazley) is out now.
