Our very talented and artistic friend, Katherine Hartman, has designed two really beautiful Mah Jongg calendars for 2017 with special pricing for friends of this blog. The first calendar displays vintage Mah Jongg sets on each of the twelve pages – the cost is discounted for readers of mahjonggandme.com at a special price of $19 per calendar (and that includes shipping to anywhere in the continental United States; Alaska, Hawaii and international buyers, please inquire regarding shipping charges) through December 31st, 2016. That’s $5 off the regular price – thank you, Katherine!!! screen-shot-2016-12-04-at-4-17-15-pmscreen-shot-2016-12-04-at-4-15-43-pmscreen-shot-2016-12-04-at-4-16-27-pm

The 2017 Mahjong Calendar is a 12-month wall calendar featuring a variety of Mahjong scenes with vintage Mahjong items, including tiles, racks, boxes, cards, and other accessories.  On one page there are full 2017 and 2018 calendars. When you open the calendar you will see that month’s Mahjong image on the top and the month’s calendar on the bottom. The back cover shows an image and description of each month. The calendar is printed in color on #100 matte cover and #100 silk text weight pages in full color. When closed the calendar measures 11″ H x 8.5″  W inches with a black spiral top and a hole for hanging. Each calendar is individually wrapped in a clear cellophane bag.

These are on sale to the readers of this blog for $12 through the end of December, 2017. That’s $3 off the regular price and, once again, shipping is free to anywhere in the continental United States (Alaska, Hawaii and international buyers should inquire regarding shipping charges). Again, thank you, Katherine!

These are great for gift-giving and if you are interested in more than one set, contact Katherine. Each card is postcard size and features a full 2017 calendar on each identical card in the set of 10. The calendars are printed on postcard weight paper and are 6′ x 4′ each. Three vintage bone tiles grace the front side along with the calendar; the back side is blank. The set is packaged in a clear cellophane bag.

I am delighted to announce some very exciting news. A new publication,THE MAHJONG COLLECTOR, a quarterly print magazine, is about to be launched by a group of people I revere and consider to be dear friends. They are experts in all things Mah Jongg and, even though the first issue has not been released just yet, I promise you that it is going to be fabulous.

And so, I am delighted to announce the collaboration of Mahjong historian, Michael Stanwick, along with mahjong researchers/collectors Bill Price, Tony Watson, Ray Heaton and Katherine Hartman, on this new mahjong magazine for collectors.

The quarterly print magazine will be out in early 2015. Through email they will let you know when they have more subscription information available.  If interested in subscribing to the magazine, please send your email to this address: subscriptions@mahjongcollector.com

THE MAHJONG COLLECTOR’s Mission Statement: “The purpose of this magazine is, firstly…
To provide a platform for Mahjong Collectors and enthusiasts to share their knowledge, skills and expertise of the history, materials, and the underlying symbolism of the designs on the tiles and, secondly… To provide a platform for showcasing the variety, beauty and the collector’s passion for Mahjong sets that will stimulate discussion about these elements of the game.”

They will be contacting collectors in the future, for interviews and to be featured as Guest Collectors.

I know that these five wonderful people all thank you in advance for your interest in their new venture; I hope you will respond to their request for subscription information by sending in your email address to subscriptions@mahjongcollector.com.
