I am currently printing up a series of I Ching Hexagrams and wonder if anyone would like one?

There are 64 different Hexagrams. Here are two of them:

If you would like a personalised 6-line Hexagram (or two)*, you have to follow these steps:

1. Get three identical coins

2. Throw the coins together. Each head counts 3 point, each tail counts 2 points.

3. Add up the result of your throw -- it will be 6, 7, 8 or 9.

4. Write this number down.

5. Throw the coins 5 more times, and each time add up the number of points you get.

6. You will then have 6 numbers, eg 768697

7. Write these down in the order -- the exact sequence of numbers is important -- that you threw the dice

And then:

1. send me a piece of Mail Art that includes your sequence of 6 numbers (or two sequences of 6 numbers if you want 2 Hexagrams)

2. choose what colour Hexagram(s) you want. The choices are:

 -- gold and black (as shown above)

 -- red and gold

 -- purple and gold.

I will print up the Hexagrams on 1 March (a special I Ching day) and mail them back to you.

Regards, Val

* You will aslo probably receive a punnekin as I have lots more waiting to be adopted.

Ti Ar: bonjour! The piece I have sent you was NOT a Hexagram (but a flag). So if you want a Hexagram you HAVE to throw the coins, specify the colour, and send me the information in or with a piece of Mail Art. In return, you'll get your very own personalised Hexagram in early May.

Ti Ar: I just sent you something, but don't know if it was a Hexagram or not.

FOLKS: don't make life complicated re colours etc...just Mail Art me somehow a set of numbers if you want a Hexagram. Yin and Yang from Personalised I Ching Hexagrams Inc (PICH) regret that they will not enter into any more correspondance about this

OK Katerina, just for you, and as it's a 'personal' series, you can have a blue Hexagram...if you send me your numbers and a piece of Mail Art. then the only question is ...light or dark blue?

and maybe wanting purple (there is BLUE in purple) and gold
