This impressive calendar was "advertised" in Telegraph Magazine (20 December, 2008) in a section designed to help consumers: "Calendars and diaries".

Readers were advised to contact Liberty, in London, where the calendar was supposedly on sale for �12.50p.

On that date (it transpired), Liberty had none of the calendars left and would not order a further supply.

One arrived today from PopArtUK: �8.99p. including postage and packing.

The calendar is a satisfactory size, and includes some "iconic" posters:

The Italian Job/Cool Hand Luke/West Side Story/2001: A Space Odyssey/In the Heat of the Night/Lolita/Lawrence of Arabia/ The Servant/Blow-Up/Psycho/How to Steal a Million/

Fellini's 8 1/2
