Pretty new papers to play with
December 12th, 2005 | Link
This weekend I finally made a trip out to the Kozo Arts store on Union Street. They sell beautiful hand-bound guest books, photo albums, journals and the like, which are available in the store and through their web site. They also sell Japanese decorative papers, but only in the store. But they had a good selection of Yuzen (as well as some Indian and Thai papers, pretty ribbons, and some bookbinding supplies–they also offer classes), and between there and the nearby Paper Source store on Fillmore I picked up enough to keep me occupied for the next year.
I don’t know why I’m favoring the girly prints right now. I just prepared four photo albums’ worth of pages (96, to be exact: cut, folded, creased, and punched over three evenings) from black Rives BFK, and only a couple of these will go with it. But, today I received some cream-colored journal and album text blocks from Hollanders, so maybe I’ll use some of my new papers to case them in!
