This lovely little lightweight book is filled with grid paper (2.5mm) to plan your next needlework designs, make lists or just doodle ideas! Get the matching Ukigami box of colored pencils and you'll be all set.
The cover is made of Ukigami, a type of Echizen washi paper produced with unique methods. The pattern on the cover is scattered pins and each one is just a little different.
The note pad opens flat to 180° and because the center of the book doesn't rise up when open, it feels like writing on a flat sheet of paper. This "flat opening" book binding is an original patented technology of Nakamura Printing Company, founded in Asakusa in 1938.
The veteran craftsmen of Tokyo's Shitamachi area finally perfected this notebook after many hundreds of prototypes. Using the flat opening technology they have created a functional note pad that allows all of both pages to be written on.
The 2 .5mm grid paper makes even small writing easy to read, and with 4 squares equaling 1cm, it is easy to make calculate designs. The light gray lines and off-white paper are easy on the eyes.
An elastic band fits to the hard front cover.
