As of today, the iamge used for the header of my blog has been updated into more of an autumnal theme. The original design is from a CD bundled with a book called ‘Japanese Traditional Pattern Collection 300’ or ‘Nihon no Dentoo-MoNyoo 300’ from the publisher ‘X-media’. The price of the book is 2,400 yen plus VAT. In the book, each image is annotated in both Japanese and English, which I think is a selleing point because the copy appeals to the visitors from overseas who may not understand Japanese but English. I really recommend this book to anyone who is truly interested in Japanese traditional patterns. Just looking at each image during my coffee break can be so relaxing and soothing.
