Book production continues, and so does paper shopping

Fresh sheets fatten up the inventory at Ma Nao Books.

For me, inspiration comes in the form of a huge tube full of Japanese paper, recently ordered from Washi Arts.

The riot of color and pattern make the rainy days of fall and winter bearable, even welcome. I look forward to spending time in the studio in a few months—once the book is on its way to press—and dreaming up new wares to wrap in this fantastical paper.
