Capture the beauty of your calligraphy work in this gorgeous red, green and gold silk calligraphy book. Made from fine rice paper , and bound with one end attached to the book and with the other folding out like an accordion, this calligraphy book is great for long calligraphy passages or shorter works.

Covered with a delicate silk cover beautifully embroidered with traditional Chinese designs, this medium sized silk calligraphy book will make a wonderful gift for anyone who loves Chinese calligraphy.

Rice paper, sometimes referred to as Xuanzhi in Chinese, is made from parts of the rice plant, as well as hemp, bamboo and rice mulberry. The texture of the paper is resilient even though its appearance is translucent and delicate. It is the preferred type of paper for Chinese calligraphy because of its high absorbency and its sensitivity to pressure.

In Chinese calligraphy, it is believed that the beauty of the work is highly related to the force or pressure applied to the brush that affects the form of characters. The highly sensitive rice paper is often used by masters because of its responsive nature to pressure. Beautifully bound in this lovely calligraphy book, this will make a wonderful gift for practitioners of Chinese calligraphy.

The way this silk calligraphy book is bound is reminiscent of ancient court memorandums. Because calligraphy favors continuity, the folded pages of this book prevent a calligrapher from having to stop his flow of movement to turn a page.

Made in China, this calligraphy book also comes with an empty title slot for writers to fill in their own titles for the book. If you love Chinese calligraphy, or knows someone who does, this silk calligraphy book makes a wonderful addition and a thoughtful gift. (Discontinued, qty is limited)
