I'm delighted to introduce this lovely pink geometric journal to my line of Chiyogami Journals! Chiyogami is the Japanese name for this type of handmade paper with colorful textile patterns that first became popular in the 1800's and was used for gift wrap for royal gifts. Photos don't do this gorgeous book justice, as the many layers of bright and colorful paint that make up the pattern on cover give the paper a lovely dimension you can actually feel with your fingertips.

While I've always loved Japanese paper, and have been mail-ordering it FOREVER, I had the once in a lifetime experience of appearing on Japanese reality TV to visit the factory where I've been purchasing this paper from for the last 10 years, and I even got to make some! That's me in the photo above, putting ink onto the paper with a silk screen stencil - read all about it at : www.bit.ly/JapanShow1

This small journal is a sturdy size 4.5"x6" with dense bookboard covers that won't warp even in the most humid of climates. It contains 160 pages of gorgeous speckled creamy filler paper that I'm so excited about - it's made by a family-owned paper mill called French Paper Co. in Michigan that makes only 100% recycled papers using hydro electric power.

Whether you're going to write, sketch, draw, or practice your calligraphy, this lay-flat journal will last you a long time and is even more beautiful in person. It also makes lovely gift for a new beginning.
