Once again it's that time of year to get new wall calendars! Although I won't be able to get one shipped to my current residence, here is at least one that you might be interested in:

Missio Art Calendar 2019 Ethiopia, available for 17,90 € or approximately $20 plus shipping to the U.S. (if available).

Here's the calendar description from the website (English translation by Chrome/Google Translate): 

Using the cycle of images created by Alem Getachew Worku for the missio art calendar, she takes inspiration from the color and design language of the Ethiopian-Christian painting tradition. 
Catchy and strong in color, the pictures give insights into the ancient Christian message of their homeland and convey what the artist herself is passionate about: to pass on the spirit of unity, of exchange and of sharing with her art. 
Alem Getachew, born in 1982 and confined to a wheelchair for 20 years by paraplegia, lives in Addis Ababa and has been working as an artist for 18 years. Very active and committed is above all the passing on of her abilities an important concern. In recent years, she has taught hundreds of people with and without disabilities art in her small gallery in Addis Ababa. 
Cover page and 17 four-color art prints, texts in four languages. 41 x 44.5 cm, with name tag leaf. Spiral binding, in a slipcase.

Unfortunately the calendar does not contain boxes for each day of the month, but rather shows one large art image with a horizontal line of dates in small print at the bottom. I was unable to determine if they ship to the U.S. or not.
