Japanese Craft Book: Rose Window

Japanese Craft Book Rose WindowRose Window by Asako Hirata

As I was browsing the Japanese craft book section, I noticed a new trend. Or at least, it’s a new trend to me. There were quite a few craft books for faux stained glass.  The fuax stained glass in all the books was made from cut tissue paper.  But what really grabbed my attention was the book Rose Window which layered the tissue paper.  The result of this technique is absolutely stunning.

Below are a few more pictures of projects from Rose Window.
