by Valeriy Kalishev
We would like to present our latest para-hobby items assembling. These are some cacti featuring calendars published in Russia. The calendars were published with an emblem of All-Russian Society of Nature Conservation. It was 250000 exemplars edition in 1984 and 1985, and 205000 exemplars edition in 1986.
During the following years the cacti featuring pocket and wall calendars, 200-500 exemplars editions, were published by some private individuals. For example, a finely printed wall calendar of a year 2005 was published (the right photo).
We would like to remind you that in the 29th issue we wrote about an envelope assembling, and in the previous, 28th issue we presented cacti lovers club badges. In the issue 27 there was a collection of post stamps with the images of cactuses from all over the world.

Practically each one of you , our readers, has got some of those items (that`s the way we, collectors, are). So don`t be shy, show them to everybody. Scan or take a picture and send them to us.
