A tale of twelve metres or a fairytale from Brno out of the book of the classical Czech 19th century writer Božena Němcová.


An unconventional comics grasp of the classical fairytale The Twelve Months. The story is set into the time of real socialism on the edge of Brno and written in "hantec", the local dialect. The calendar was created by enlarging the original twelve colored mini-linocuts from 1977 that were printed in twenty copies on a hand-operated bookbinding press.
