The European Chapter of the International Netsuke Society has existed for over 20 years, but as we cover a large geographical area it has inherent problems arranging meetings which everyone can attend.
At a board meeting in 1975 the idea of holding ‘meetings on paper’ was mooted, with the publication of a modest magazine that would cover European events and give a voice to European collectors.
In the autumn of 1975 we proudly published our first issue of 28 pages, initially a quarterly magazine, but now a larger magazine which comes out twice a year.
In 2009 we took a step forward, producing the autumn issue in colour.
