Natsu Midi Lined Hardback Journal

These intricate details of spring and summer flowers are from an 18th-century Japanese paper screen by artist Watanabe Shiko (1683–1755), who painted in the Rinpa style. Rinpa is a leading historical school of Japanese painting, established in 17th-century Kyoto, whose artists were known for working in a range of formats, notably screens, fans, hanging scrolls and kimono textiles. The design on the cover shows a section of a screen with various types of blooms often believed to follow the ancient Japanese language of flowers, called Hanakotoba. This original work is housed at the Ashmolean Museum of Art and Archaeology at the University of Oxford. Hardcover, 144 pages. Measures 5 x 1 x 7 in.
