Calendars for 2020
Dear friends of Ireland,
We would like to present you our latest project: Our calendars for 2020 titled „Irische Impressionen“. They come in three formats, namely in A3, A4 and A5. We were allowed to choose freely from the photographs that were handed in for our photo competition earlier this year – what a range of exceptional pictures that was to work with! I would like to thank all photographers which kindly allowed us to use and publish their photographs – without your consent this project would not have been possible. And I thank Claudia Kottmann, a new member, for her work on the calendars. Between the two of us we managed to design the calendars within a relatively short time. We really hope you will like the result as much as we do…
Please have a sneak view on the look of the 3 calendar versions, enjoy lovely impressions of Ireland – and feel free to order a calendar for yourself or as a gift for someone special.
