Japanese Craft Book: Mizuhiki Arrangement

Mizuhiki Craft BookWhile at the Kinokuniya bookstore in San Francisco, I came across a new mizuhiki book.  I’m sure there are a many Japanese mizuhiki books available but I rarely see them. So of course I had to get it. I liked that the book had a good balance of traditional and contemporary uses for mizuhiki.

For those not with familiar with mizuhiki, it’s a cord made out rice paper. They come in a variety of colors and sometimes stripes.  The cord is often used to make decorative knots that are found on cards and gifts.
