The MIRROR WATER journal is tactile, made from Japanese Kozo Paper (mulberry paper), which has been resist-dyed using natural colours and soybean glue, applied in a style derived from kimono and fabric design. This process is known as Katazome stencil printing and modernist postwar in flavour. Between 190-200 ruled pages fill the inside of the journal making it a very chunky book.
The lime green sponge effect on the outer pages of the journal is known as edge-sponging or edge-marbling. This hand applied colour can vary due to the handmade artisanal process and the colour is mixed on the day by eye by the bookbinder.
The fabric on the journal is a standard fabric linen as used in traditional bookbinding. All materials for this journal are made in the EU/UK/JAPAN.
