The Beasts of the East is a 2016 calendar and set of note cards based on medieval bestiaries but created by modern day artists. The artists belong to the East Kingdom, the northeast branch of the Society for Creative Anachronism. The SCA is a world wide organization that recreates the arts and skills of pre-17th Europe (and beyond).
The calendars and notecards are a wonderful way to enjoy the amazing work done by artisans in the SCA or to share it with others. Poems about each beast are included on the pages. The art of each month can be found in the image gallery.
