Namakubi Personal/Sketch Journal #1661

For this journal I used the cover and bottom of a Namakubicigar box. The paper used is high quality 70 lb Strathmore Drawing paper, which is great for sketching and is also fountain-pen friendly. The book was sewn together using a classic Coptic stitch that dates back to the 2nd century and allows the journal to open flat for easy writing and sketching.  I also used waxed Irish linen thread for durability.  

From the makers marketing:  “Namakubi (nah-mah-koo-bee) – Although in many ways long gone, Samurai culture is believed to live on in spirit within certain groups.  In ancient times when two Samurai clans would gather for competition there was a great deal at stake.  Normally, the losing party would die as a result of wounds sustained in battle or be executed upon defeat.  The Namakubi, or “freshly severed head” of the losing party would be prepared on a wooden tray then tagged in a regimented manner and presented to the leader of the winning class as a gift.”
