About This Item

JAPANESE BRAIDED KNOT WORK


Two volumes. Oblong (10" x 15") paper-covered boards with calligraphic labels within decorative knot-work borders. Japanese accordion-fold bindings (orihon): single sheets hinged together and attached at each end to a board, becoming the front and back covers of the book. Light wear.

Each volume with eighteen striking wood block designs printed in several colors, often heightened in silver and gold and with embossing. The patterns are made by knotting thin ropes to form various patterns. The verb "musubi" has moral and cultural connotations in Japanese, Chinese and Korean cultures, deriving from a sacred word in Shintoism. Contemporary Japanese still practice "hana-musubi" (flower knotting) to decorate for happy occasions.
