about the book

This book consists of five volumes. Making this book was an exercise on all levels: I bought a new brush, paper and inkstone, and the five volumes contain different markmaking attempts and exercises on the new paper. The binding itself as well as the enclosure were made following the original instructions in Kojiro Ikegami, not the abbreviated version I learned before.

Materials used include rubbing ink, Japanese calligraphy paper, thick Thai patterned paper, cardboard, printable book fabric, bone closure.

Made: June 2014
