This Journal features traditional Japanese Chiyogami Paper. It is lined and filled with 70 pages of Italian Algae Paper and wire-bound with a bronze finish. In our Birmingham studio we carefully hand-make our covers, count our pages and look over every last detail before we finally bind the book together.
Chiyogami paper is printed with patterns traditionally applied to kimonos, called Yuzen. Yuzen designs created in Kyoto's textile industry satisfied demands for bright colours and symbolic motifs on clothing during the Edo period in Japan (1603-1868). Papermakers soon adopted the precise detail and brilliance of these fashionable items for use on paper-based ornaments within the home.
"Chiyogami" (-gami meaning paper) became the word for paper decorated with repeated Japanese woodblock-printed patterns. Craftsmen began to use silkscreen printing as a manufacturing method and continue to do so today. Chiyogami is now available in both traditional and contemporary patterns.
Using this paper to cover journals puts the rich heritage of Japanese printing into your hands.
These journals are lined and filled with algae paper in a beautiful ivory colour. This Italian paper was designed to solve the problem of suffocating algal bloom in the Venetian Lagoon. Made of a combination of algae and FSC-certified pulp, the paper is smooth and PH-neutral. This makes it suitable for archival use, including situations where acid-free paper is required.
