Japanese paper Japanese binding notebook (A5, A6 )
The cover is patterned with chintz, a technique of Karagami.
Also, unlike Western paper, Japanese paper has the advantage that it does not oxidize and does not deteriorate easily.
It goes well with ink and oil and does not bleed even when wet.
Please use it for things that you want to keep for a long time. Two sizes, A5A6, are available.
I am using the A6 notebook issued by karagen inc for my hobby work collection of eraser hanko. It's hard to find a notebook of this size that has a handmade atmosphere, and I fell in love with it because it was small but had an outstanding presence. And when you start using it, you will notice the charm of this notebook.
First of all, I like the size of pushing the eraser Hanko's work in the middle of each page. And above all, I really like the texture of the notebook. The Japanese atmosphere of Karagami matches the texture of the stamps and vermilion, which further enhances the work. In addition, there are many types of covers, and I feel that it is good to use different works according to the color and pattern of each arabesque. I think it's a product that gives you a lot of enthusiasm for making works if you can't make mistakes just because of the wonderful notes.
In today's society, digitalization is advancing, and even amateurs are often able to make everything like that. I don't think that's a bad thing, but I think that the technology and traditional culture of each country should be valued and inherited by all means. Even with the progress of technological innovation, I thought that it would be important for many people to get close to them in various ways and to be able to experience their goodness, using this notebook. .. I hope that more and more people will actually pick it up and feel the goodness of traditional Japanese culture from its texture and texture.
I'm working on a schedule book for next year 💡
Since the paper is durable, I made a frame using masking tape and a diary sticker 🎶
The first page of the spread describes this year's aspirations ⭐️
With a brush 😄
I tried to use it in the place to enter the schedule and goal of the month after the second page, the place to enter the schedule based on the date and the spread page 🤔
Probably, it is more likely to be a word diary than planned, but 💦💦
Because it is A6 size, it is fun to freely make notebooks that can be used as private notebooks instead of business notebooks ✨
I would like to write with a fountain pen ❗❗
I wrote a thankful word on the opening page 💡
The writing taste is very good 💖
The size is also easy to carry, and it is good for people who make my notebook 😁
Speaking of the size of A6, it is about the size of a smartphone with a slightly wider width. Forty pages of Hosho paper are bound on the cover of Karagami with four stitches.
I decided to use this as a schedule book. At first, I thought it would be good if it could be used as a simple notepad, but is it a little small for me? I have never seen a notebook with a "Japanese" binding or cover, rather than a dull cover like a business notebook. I usually manage schedules on my smartphone, but for sudden confirmation and bookkeeping, the notebook is easier to use than the smartphone, and the schedule of the month is large and easy to see. Above all, there are many opportunities to put out the notebook in public and use it, so I thought it was inevitable to attract attention as "What? What is it? Notebook? I have never seen this." I wrote the calendar with a brush pen using two pages spread, and tried to create a Japanese look here as well, but it was very troublesome (laughs). If possible, if there is a printed one, would it be even easier to use? If there seems to be demand, I would like you to make such a thing.
