That is right - back by popular demand it is nearly time for the Osprey Advent Calendar. Of course military history is not the ideal source subject for finding the joy of Christmas (Football matches in no-mans land aside) so over the last couple of years we have celebrated some of our best ever artwork, the rare oddities in our 2000 odd books, and a series of posts where the people at Osprey chose their favourite all-time Osprey books.

While I was thinking what theme to take for this year i stumbled across the fact that in the last 6 months we have published books featuring artwork from 25 different Osprey artists. Which was just too good an opportunity to pass up.

So over the next 25 days, stay tuned for some brilliant pieces of artwork by some equally brilliant artists!
