The 2008 Henna Page Calendar FOREWORD by Roy Jones Henna found its way into the online world a little over ten years ago. Since then, henna body art has evolved as traditional and contemporary approaches to the craft have reached a worldwide audience through the medium of the Internet. The Henna Page has been part of the spread of henna beyond its traditional boundaries and, because of the hard work and continuing support of an increasing number of online henna enthusiasts and professionals, continues to be the primary online source for henna information. The first Henna Page calendar, in 2006, was an experiment in publishing photographic images of henna in a practical format that could be distributed through the World Wide Web. It was also our free gift to henna users worldwide. The calendar was also an opportunity to showcase the designs of some of the most creative people working in contemporary henna body art. The experiment has been a success. Over 75,000 copies of the first two editions of the Henna Page calendar have been downloaded and many hundreds mailed as CDs. The 2008 Henna Page calendar continues the original vision…to present examples of contemporary body art in henna, indigo and other media, and to offer it free to everyone to thank you for your devotion to the craft and your support of the Henna Page.
