We'Moon 2018 Review!

 

"If you love the Goddess (however you imagine Her) and want to follow the bodily, spiritual, astrological and lunar cycles of the year, WeMoon is for you! First published in 1981, the WeMoon women's datebook (and its associated sister wall calendar and other products) is more than just a venerable institution: it is a yearly inspiration to explore our shared experience. 2018's "La Luna" edition is the newest installment in the series, and more packed with wit and wisdom than ever. Both the classic datebook and the large format wall calendar are especially beautiful this year; I especially liked the luscious “Oneonta Gorge” painting (by Jeanette M French) that adorns the April page of the WeMoon on the Wall 2018 calendar, and the whimsical (untitled) image of Mary Poppins crossing a wild creek (Shoshanah Dubiner) image that starts the Lunacy (Third Moon) section in the datebook. One important note: the WeMoon on the Wall calendar uses the standard (Gregorian) month system and familiar grid pattern, thus making this wall calendar suitable for every day use, while the classic WeMoon 2018: Gaia Rhytmns for Womyn Datebook tracks the year by lunar cycles, making this datebook most suitable for our spiritual, astrological, and personal reflections. Highly recommended!"

Responding to Tobey:
“Hi there – just want to say I love love love We’Moon and I use the spiral bound desk version, as I have for years, but I also truly hope you will consider returning to the coated paper for 2019 and beyond. It is just not the same experience/quality. Thought you should know!”

Thank you for your feedback about our new paper. We decided to go retro, to the paper we used to use pre-2013, for a few reasons:
The high gloss paper had a “carbon copy” effect that picked up ink and marked up pages underneath pages that folks were writing on, unless the writer was using a felt tip pen with a light touch. The only solution was to varnish the art with a plastic coating. That solution worked alright, but had a high environmental impact that we weren’t happy with. It also caused the books to off-gas for a time, which seemed unhealthy.
The other problem with the glossy paper was that ink smeared, and graphite didn’t adhere well to the paper.
With the new toothy matte paper, we have none of these problems. Our one dissatisfaction is that the art doesn’t pop from the page as brilliantly, and that may be remedied by increasing the saturation of the images, which we will try with the 2019 edition.
Both the glossy and the matte paper have a high content of recycled, post consumer ingredients, and for both we use low VOC soy based ink.

I hope you grow to love this rendition of We’Moon as much as you have in the past.

Brightest Blessings,
Barb

I adore this calendar. I purchase the bound book every year for myself and this year, I purchased two more to gift to friends. The impeccable quality, lunar information, and gorgeous art and prose make this a book to keep, even when the year is through. I don’t know where I would be without my We’Moon datebook!

Hi there,

I live in Australia and just wondered if the cycles and info would still be in sync with being in another country?

Thanks so very much xx
