Book Arts and Paper Arts in Japan
There’s a 98% chance that I’ll be going to Japan for my summer vacation and I can barely contain my excitement! The 2% of uncertainty is due to the fact that we haven’t yet purchased airline tickets.
In usual me fashion, I have begun with the obsessive planning. What does that mean? It means that a spreadsheet was born.
I love spreadsheets. They make me feel like I’m in control.
My spreadsheet includes all of the book arts and paper arts sites that I’ve found during rabbit hole-type Googling – stores, museums, artist studios, and galleries among them. As of today, there are 50ish sites on the list, the majority of them paper-related.
FYI – Just because something is on the list, it doesn’t mean that I’m going there. There’s no way to see all of that during an average-length vacation. Plus I have my hubby to think about – he might want to see other things. Go figure.
If you’re interested in checking out my special brand of crazy, head on over here. And if you’re aware of something that’s not on the list – please let me know! I’m especially interested in visiting a Chiyogami studio – I haven’t had any luck finding one.
Thanks for sharing!
