Lewis Carroll has many students and fans in Japan, and I was lucky enough to receive a lovely gift from Yoshi Momma, a major Japanese collector. He knows the illustrator Hirai Takako and he has asked her to inscribe her 2012 Alice calendar which he gave as a gift to me.

I love it. On the back, it shows each month's picture.


I like all the pictures, but my favourite is February


I don't know whether to use this calendar every day next year, or keep it in its wrapping in perfect condition ...
