tatebanko

. .








buy: tatebanko, a forgotten japanese art of creating amazing dioramas and scenic perspective from paper. tatebanko was popular and widely admired from the edo period ( 17th century ) to the early 20th century. then it all but disappeared. this one i have is hiroshige - kambara, the evening show. it's a gift from a friend, i really enjoyed every second i spent on the making and pretty happy with the results too. i love japanese art.
