Some Very Good, Old Boro Paper

December 14, 2013

Today I’m showing some pieces of “boro” paper from my personal collection.  These pieces are several layers thick and they are glued together from old ledger books, creating unintended, tone-on-tone collages.  Each very beautiful.  They date from the 19th through the early 20th century and each is about 30″ or 76 cm square.  The are said to have been used in pawn shops to wrap goods.

A Clutch of Varied Photos: Japan, October 2013

December 7, 2013

About six weeks ago I returned from a buying trip to Japan, and when I’m back in New York after such a trip, I get caught up in myriad details of running my business.  That said, it was only today that I was able to review some of the photos I snapped in Japan in mid October and I wanted to share some with you.
