Magic Roundabouts

Magic Roundabouts

It's that time of year again: Spears, Andre, the hunks of Hollyoaks...they've all got their brand new, 2005 calendars out there in the shops.

Some are official, some are unofficial...but they're all crap.

But now, thanks to "self-confessed traffic island fanatic" Kevin Beresford the London-based calendar fan has an alternative to the slightly greased torsoes of C List celebrities. And that alternative is roundabouts.

Two years ago Kevin had to decide on a novel present for the customers of his Redditch-based printing firm. After some serious thought he plumped for "The Roundabouts of Redditch - 12 stunning shots of the very best traffic- islands Worcestershire had to offer.".

The idea was, as you would imagine, an immediate success, and Kevin has gone on to turn the idea into a series of books and he's also formed the UK Roundabout Appreciation Society.

The 2004 calendar sold over 30,000 copies and Kevin is hoping to better that for 2005. So if you fancy some hot, one-way action for Xmas time, you can buy one of Kevins' calendars online over at his roundabout shop.
