Japanese Lacquer Boxes 'Karakusa' by Paperblanks


Our journal cover features the image of an antique 19th-century Japanese lacquer box from the Edo or Meiji period. Lacquerware is created by painting tree sap onto treasured objects to protect and enhance them. The original box, lacquered in the Maki-e style, uses metallic dust to create luxurious patterns and is evidence of the uniquely human ability to create beauty from unlikely sources.
