Description

"The left-handed are precious, they take the places which are inconvenient for the rest." So wrote Victor Hugo in his famous play Les Miserables. This calendar celebrates what it means to be a southpaw with trivia, facts, quotes, anecdotes, legends, and more about left-handedness and left-handers. For example, did you know that Rome erected a sculpture of portsider Leonardo da Vinci waving his left hand to welcome guests to the city' Or that left-hander Elias Howe, who invented the sewing machine, put the needle on the left side of the machine where it remains today' Or that lefty musician Jimi Hendrix taught himself how to play the guitar by flipping a right-handed guitar upside down' This calendar is the "right" gift for any of the 40 million left-handed people in the United States. This is the eleventh year for The Left-Hander's day-to-day calendar. Each page features a little known fact, legend, anecdote, or trivia about left-handedness or a famous left-handed person. It also recognizes the birthdays of famous left-handed people.show more
