LES VAGUES (THE WAVES): JAPANESE WAVES OF YUSAN MORI NOTEBOOKASIAN ART MUSEUM
Perfect for sketching, design, writing, or collage, this notebook features wave designs by Japanese artist Mori Yuzan on its back cover. In 1903, Yuzan's wave designs were published in a resource guide for Japanese craftsmen looking to add aquatic motifs to their wares. Little is known about the artist, only that he was from Kyoto, worked in the Nihonga style, and died in 1917. His designs found their way onto swords (both blades and handles) and associated paraphernalia (known as "sword furniture"), as well as lacquerware, netsuke, religious objects, and a host of other items.
This notebook has 240 blank pages of high-quality acid-free ivory drawing paper and is bound with ecru linen stitching that allows the book to lie open completely flat; it is complemented by top-quality stitched seams on the spine.
