Monday, September 15, 2014, 09:26 GMT+7

More than thirty calendar designs featuring Vietnam’s islands, landscapes, delicacies, and traditional culture are on exhibit in Ho Chi Minh City until next Sunday.

The 35 wall calendar designs are being showcased at the “Vietnamese Book and Calendar Week” exhibition, which runs at 92 Le Thanh Ton Street, District 1, until September 21.

“Dao Xanh Nuoc Viet” (Vietnam’s Green Islands), a new design by photographer Gian Thanh Son, features his photos taken from a helicopter of seven islands in the central and southern regions.

The designs, which do not include any Chinese characters as usual, also feature “Di San Viet” (Vietnamese Heritage), a water color block calendar depicting relics and scenic spots across the country.

Another highlight is a calendar called “365 Ngay Xuyen Viet” (365 Days across Vietnam), by photographer Nguyen Hoang Nam, which captures Vietnam’s landscapes and people during his cross-country trip over three years.

Other designs boast collections of Vietnam’s lighthouses, traditional cakes and pies, jam, traditional craft villages, and rustic landscapes.

Apart from the 35 wall calendars, desk calendars also boast richly colored cartoons depicting the country’s folk games and festivals, as well as endangered animals and other themes.

New books by young, emerging readers are also featured at the exhibit.

A number of exchanges and book presentations will also be held.

Among them, young calligraphist Dang Hoc will hold an exchange and free Vietnamese calligraphy writing section from 9:00 am to 12:00 pm on Wednesday.
