JOURNEY INTO THE EXOTIC WORLD OF MAH JONGG
Inspired by the museum exhibition Project Mah Jongg, Ann Israel took mah jongg lessons with a group of friends, including Gregg Swain, the co-author of her recent book, Mah Jongg: The Art of the Game. When they started playing, they also began to appreciate the spectacular vintage sets that still existed, and soon Israel purchased her first. As Israel and Swain continued to collect vintage sets, each piece added to their appreciation of the art of the game. Join Israel as she shares images and stories of the most exquisite and rare mah jongg sets and ephemera.
