Literary Pin-Up Calendar

6 Oct

We’ve all seen the sexy library pin-ups, but artist Lee Moyer has taken it a step further and created a 2013 calendar of pin-up fantasy characters. After contacting 12 fantasy authors and obtaining permission to use their characters, he created next year’s calendar.

In conjunction with Wordbuilders all proceeds from the $20 calendar will go to the charity Heifer International, an organization that donates livestock to in need families around the world.

Moyer’s artwork is inspired by the characters from the works of Peter S. Beagle, Ray Bradbury, Patricia Briggs, Jim Butcher, Jacqueline Carey, Neil Gaiman, Charlaine Harris, Robin Hobb, N.K. Jemisin, George R. R. Martin, Terry Pratchett, and Patrick Rothfuss.

You can pre-order your copy of the 2013 Literary Pin-Up calendar through The Tinker’s Packs.

And follow artist Lee Moyer’s blog!

Wordbuilder’s mission statement is “to use the collective power of readers, fellow authors and book lovers to make the world a better place.” This is definitely a fun way to help out a great organization.
