He writes "It is a weird project, much too costly because of print-on-demand. I hope to get a high-volume, low-cost calendar next year. This year my publishers did do a special English edition, 12x12" or 12x24" with the calendar page flapped down - Tony Hadland has polished the English versions of my short explanations. You can see a more extensive preview at at where they sell it for a prohibitive GBP 24.99. But from Book Depository (one of the alternative sellers linked to on Amazon) it costs just GBP 20.70 with postage included."

The calendar itself features a variety of lovely vintage machines, including tandems and trikes:
