I like the abs. Journal of American bonsai society. The actually write fresh current articles. Some of the other publish articles that were written some time ago.

Mitch,
I am stunned that you weren't given a refund or allowed to receive the rest of your three year's worth of Bonsai Focus. Did you contact Bonsai Focus to explain?

interesting..........do you think America is its own bonsai world too?

I drift in and out of love with mags - have not had a subscription for about 4 yrs now but will have a Bonsai Focus one for next year as they are putting out some really interesting articles recently.

I suppose the US is also its own Bonsai world to some extent, but I personally feel more affinity to tropical and subtropical Asia and America than I do Europe. I think part of it might be the species we grow, you don't do many tropicals in Europe, but also from what I have seen the less traditional styles of pots and trees are more popular in Europe.

If you can get hold of the current International Bonsai Magazine (2012 #3), it should make up your mind for you. Mine arrived Friday.

Partial contents:

  • A picture essay by Kyosuke Gun (MY hero for all of his little trees) on creating a Podocarpus mini.


  • Eight gorgeous photos of the prize winners from the U.S. National Exhibition 6that Bill and others put on.

  • A bit of bonsai history regarding a Jpanese hemlock given to the National Arboretum collection by the Japanese royal family.


  • An article by Bill (first of a series about the Classical and traditional Japanese forms for bonsai) describing the Informal Upright Design.

  • An excellent article by Kimura on designing a juniper from scratch -- first of a two-parter.


  • The latest John Romano column on shohin.


  • Pics from the 86th National Bonsai Exhibit (Kokufu Bonsai Ten).

And more.
