Looking for a multicultural calendar that shows different systems for describing dates.

I'm looking for a printed calendar that shows, in overlay format, many of the world systems for describing dates, such as Gregorian, Islamic, Jewish, Chinese, etc... Something to hang on my wall. I don't care if it is "flipbook" style or a large poster. Is something like that commercially available?

Bonus points if the descriptions of the dates are in both the native alphabets and transliterated.

Perhaps this question isn't being answered because there is not a lot out there. (And maybe because it is a Sunday.) Still, in this multi-cultural world it is surprising. I thought this would be easy to find.

I've done quite a bit of searching, and not come up with much. There are online calendars, of course, but that is not what I'm looking for.

Make your own using Google Calendar. Gregorian dates are the default. Go to Other Calendars > Browse Interesting Calendars > More and subscribe to Hebrew Calendar to add the Jewish calendar. You will find instructions for adding the Islamic Calendar here. After that you're on your own.
