collection of 5 mini books. Each has one or several lines in black ink. - I was trying out a new inkstick (my first) and different brushes. Booklets bound in traditional Japanese style, complete with an inner binding and corner pieces.

The wrapping case is covered in a book cloth that has the print of one of the lines on it, closed with a bone clasp.

I really like these. Asian-style bindings that actually have the look of Asian books.

Glad you like them! With the japanese inkstick and -stone at hand, I tried to keep everything in theme. Unfortunately I don't have someone close who could write Japanese for me, so I had Matthias (my husband) wite "exercise 1", "exercise 2" ... on the title strip in Chinese. For all I know it has a chance to work in Japanese, too. - Maybe luck is kind :-)
