  Yi Jing, Oracle of the Moon

Shenshu oracle soon in print!

Before end of 2018 I will have the Shenshu available as a printed book.

The size is A5 horizontal (21 x 15 x 2 cm.) and it will have ± 220 pages.

 

In the back for every verse a short commentary/explanation.

Here in the website I will post every backgroud story I discover. In the book at every verse which has a story, there will be the website-address for it.

  There are many verses which are based on stories, paintings, poems or on historic happenings.
