Love this


The book cover fastens with an elastic loop and button and has a ribbon bookmark.

Width between 5 and 5.5 inch (12.5 - 14 cm)
Height between 7.75 and 8.25 inch (20 - 21 cm)

Special sizes can be made on request.
Also available in a larger size, with a slightly different temple, available here, in my Large Book Covers Section:

Made from a medium weight Silk Omeshi, which is a very study woven silk. The Temple, Bridge and landscape are woven into the silk after the main fabric has been made. The plain navy blue has a slight sheen and there is a subtle zig zag woven into it.

These covers may be very gently hand washed only.
Lay flat to dry away from direct heat.
When dry a light press only with a warm iron.
Please do NOT machine wash or machine dry.

The books and files in the pictures are for demonstration purposes only.
You are only buying a Book Cover.
The pattern placement on the fabric may vary.
Lining colour, beads and button may vary slightly.



The silhouette of the temple roof looks very dramatic against the pinks, blues, mauve and yellow of the morning sky at dawn. You can also see the outline of a traditional Japanese bridge set off against the skyline.
The fabric for the book cover has been cut from a bolt of Silk Omeshi meant for Kimono but was never used.
Lined with a soft Yukata cotton, again from an unused bolt of Kimono cotton, with a pattern of fans and chrysanthemums.
Both fabrics are vintage and date from the period 1970's to 1980's.
