Diamond Pattern - Japanese Stab Binding

Diamond Pattern - Japanese Stab Binding

I am trying to use up larger scraps of paper.  In this case I bound a book using the Japanese stab binding, diamond pattern.  Maybe you can see it more closely if you enlarge the image.  I thought that I needed to soften the cover a bit with the Japanese calligraphy paper.  I made the marbled paper when I was in San Francisco this past fall.

Oh! That paper must have been so much fun to make! It’s beautiful and such a terrific combination with the japanese sript.

Yes those groovy angles are wonderfully echoing the angles in the calligraphy...visa versa.
Your artful eye at work. Love it
