The new Blue & White calendar for 2016 has finally come out – or is it in? Next year is the year of the Red Fire Monkey. Smart, clever, lively, quick witted. Honest, enthusiastic, self-assured, innovative, and social. But also jealous, suspicious, selfish and arrogant.
Hard to believe but Blue & White will soon turn 40!
40 years of discovery and surprise. And more than 30 years of original hand made calendars, each with a new theme. So our 40th birthday calendar is a beauty contest from the best of 30 plus years of calendar covers. We thank our friends who have made it possible and our hard working staff who have helped produce the calendar each year. Hiroko Izumi is our creative angel who continues to come up with heart filled design ideas and witty drawings. Asako Sangai has helped to put together many of the calendar layouts and Kiyoshi Nakatsu, our producer keeps hoping that one year we will meet his printing deadline.
Blue & White would never have reached 40 without each one of you – our precious customers, our staff and our makers, and you dear Readers. Have a look at the months of the Red Fire Monkey, and if you would like to order, instructions are at the end of the months.
Wishing you all the quick wit, the liveliness and the enthusiasm of the Red Fire Monkey in 2016.
