Gorgeous example of katazome on paper

(if you are looking for the Happy New Year Giveaway just click here. You may enter 'til January 15th!) This week the Dreamers Rise blog features a katazome calendar created by Takeshi Nishijima, who was apparently a contemporary of Serizawa Keisuke (1895–1984). Click the image below to link to the full article and to see the rest of the calendar images. They are extraordinary! The blog also features a review of the Serizawa show at the Japan Society of NYC, which closes on January 17th. You can also check out my previous post which shows off my own Serizawa katazome calendar from 1971.
