Japanese Paper

I wanted to post some pictures of the paper my girlfriend bought me in Kyoto at a very cool little stationary shop. It’s laid out in a beautifully watermarked grid. It’s the kind of paper that makes me want to learn more Kanji, just so I can write beautiful letters.

I also found it ironic that I went to every stationer I could find in Oxford and couldn’t find paper anywhere nearly as well designed. Oxford, which is supposedly one of the literary capitals of the western world… Ho hum.
