The Dream of the Red Chamber Calendar

The calendar was designed based on the poem and couplets from the Chinese literary classic, The Dream of the Red Chamber. The poems are explained from the perspective of the context and cultural value. The calendar also added information about the elite lifestyle of ancient Chinese people and a series of traditional Chinese ink paintings and calligraphy.

"To my deep regret, I only read The Dream of the Red Chamber once when I was in high school. But this calendar brought me back to the amazing world written by Cao Xueqin," reader ruc1991 commented on Amazon.

The datebook got 7.7 points out of 10 on Douban, a Chinese popular review site.

"As a faithful fan of The Dream of the Red Chamber, I fell in love with the calendar once I got it," an anonymous Douban user said.
