A Schreibkalandrer or writing calendar is an almanac in book form typical in the early modern period in German-speaking countries. These almanacs usually contained a calendar, astronomical and astrological information, weather forecasts and farm rules, political events, advice on bathing, bloodletting as well as on fertility and illness. The calendar is interspersed with blank pages for handwritten notes. Schreibkalandrer were considered the first printed mass medium. They were distributed by the printers that produced them, in bookstores or by peddlers.
