Luxurious Japanese Traditional Lacquerware Maki-e style notebook “Tsuru” with elegant flying cranes motif
The ingenuity and grace of the ancient craft of lacquerware is celebrated on this beautiful notebook cover portraying a masterful example of antique Japanese maki-e lacquer art. A delightful combination of 1,500 years traditional Japanese art with our Modern Life
Maki-e (蒔 絵 - “sprinkled picture”) is a lacquerware crafting technique in which sap from the lacquer tree is sprinkled with metallic powder, such as gold, silver or copper, to create luxurious designs. Over the centuries, craftsmen learned to use this sap, which hardens to a brilliant, hard gloss coating, as a finish to decorate and protect wood and paper objects. These fine lacquered surfaces are evidence of the unique human ability to create beauty from most unexpected sources.
This notebook is a hard back decorative notebook, which would be ideal for personal journal use, work or office use and has a unique Japanese design on the covering with luxurious picture of two flying golden cranes.
