Nearly twenty years in the past I made my first exhibit catalog – a retrospective that includes bushes from Bay Island Bonsai’s first 5 displays.
BIB’s first exhibit e book
Amassing the photographs and metadata from 5 years’ price of bushes was a giant endeavor! I bear in mind scanning pictures and slides for many of the bushes and mixing these with a couple of native digital information.

It felt like fairly an achievement on the time – a lot in order that it ended up being the primary and final retrospective undertaking (BIB produced annual books thereafter).
Quick forwarding 20 years, I’m comfortable to announce that the commemorative album from the primary Pacific Bonsai Expo is now accessible!
The primary Expo e book
The e book options pictures of the 75 bushes that have been on show plus occasion pictures that provide an thought of what the occasion was like for contributors.

The e book was the results of the Expo e book workforce: Mark Britton, Larry Ganiron, George Haas, Thaison Kawal, Bob King, and Janet Roth.
For every tree within the exhibit, the workforce collected tree names, tree heights, artist statements, and when accessible, stand and container info.

The Expo workforce want to thank everybody who pre-ordered the commemorative albums for his or her endurance. We obtained the primary printed copies over the weekend and will likely be sending all pre-orders out this week.
In the event you haven’t had an opportunity to order one, yow will discover them on-line on the Pacific Bonsai Expo Web site.
Along with making ready the exhibit catalog, the Expo workforce has been onerous at work making preparations for the 2024 occasion. We’re actually enthusiastic about it and can share particulars later this 12 months!
