Urban Journal

I found the Japanese paper for this binding at a small paper store in San Francisco and was immediately enthralled with it. It's Deco-like design is like no other Chiyogami print I've ever seen. I made a sturdy journal from it using black silk bookcloth to complement its colors. I also decided to have graphite edges as their dark silvery sheen emphasized the urban appeal of the paper.
