BCI is a different magazine published by Bonsai Clubs Internationaln not by me the International Bonsai Arboretum. My magazine, International BONSAI, is the first and only professional bonsai magazine published in the united States now in our 32nd year (issue No. 127). More information can be located on my website at:
Being a big fan of bonsai mags... Eric and I get just about all of them... ABS, Golden Statements, Bonsai Focus, Gulf Stream Tropical Bonsai, and Bonsai International...
While the hubby enjoys them all, my personal favorite, and the one I actually read, is Bonsai International...
Yes... this is a shameless plug... because I love this magazine. It's the only one where I've sought and acquired very old back issues... I've got issue #1 among them... won't part with it for love nor money.
So glad to know that the next one is on it's way!!
I recieved mine fairly quickly after completing the online order form. I like the format of the magazine as well, it has several informative articles. I wish this one and ABS would combine to make one larger magazine that covers American and International Bonsai.
I'm glad you look forward to reading International BONSAI!
My local bonsai club also subscribes to the magazine. The magazines are mailed by a distribution company at the same post office where our club has their post office box. I've seen the magazine take TWO WEEKS just to move through the building a couple of hundred feet!
I started going through the latest issue of International Bonsai this morning. The issue as a whole is excellent, but I thought Bjorn Bjrorholm's article on spring and summer maintenance for deciduous trees was particularly fantastic. He definitely has a great gift for writing clearly in a very informative matter, which is not an easy thing. I hope we can look forward to more articles from him in the future.
