Paperblanks Kari-ori, Japanese Kimono Midi 5 x 7 Inch Journal
Paperblanks Kara-ori, Japanese Kimono Midi 5 x 7 Inch Journal with Lined or Blank Paper
Canadian Publisher Paperblanks is always on the hunt for great art from our shared world cultural heritage to put on the covers of their high quality notebooks. This 5 x 7 inch hardcover Japanese Kimono journal represent a journey over centuries of Japanese theatrical costumes. The Edo period (1615-1868) is a cultural and artistic treasure trove. The popularity of the Noh theatrical style during the Edo period led to the design of exquisitely embroidered karaori kimonos. The fabric of one of those kimonos, designed to portray a noble woman, is now part of the collection of the Art Institute of Chicago and lends its delicate floral and plant pattern to the cover of the Paperblanks Midi Kara-ori notebook. Today you can own this beautiful design and make it part of your writing routine and should you so wish let it transport you back to a performance centuries ago.
