THE TRADITIONAL images of romance, youth and beauty have been forsaken in an unusual pictorial calendar for the new year.

Entitled The Twelve Faces of Age, the new publication concentrates on older people and features a variety of photographs which include a couple using walking frames, old people lifting weights, and the image above - captured by Mark Hakansson - of a woman enjoying an aquatic aerobics workout. The calendar's publisher, Nick Hayes, said: 'What we've got above all is more humour and wit than you would ever imagine.'
