What happened to Cicero’s head after he was murdered on 7 December 43 BC? Who saw America first on 12 October 1492? Which year was fated to be famous in British history principally for the ‘Great Stink’? How much money did Donald Trump lose on Black Monday? Who concluded that both he and his brother must have been conceived during the old August Bank Holiday?
Find the answers to these questions, and many more, in the LRB Diary for 2021, which has mined the paper’s archive to find an incident from history, tall tale or seasonal poem for every week of next year. With writing by many of our greatest contributors, five new paintings by Jon McNaught and a clutch of useful features, it will enrich and enliven your annual planning, even if everything’s still cancelled.
The diary measures 15.5 cm (6 inches) wide x 21.5 cm (8 inches) high. It also has a ribbon and back internal pocket.
