Sagabon is the name given to the beautifully decorated books which were produced in Japan's Keicho period. The publisher was a rich Kyoto merchant, Suminokura Soan. The text was written by Honami Koetsu, a famous calligrapher and the founder of the Rimpa School of Japan painting. The books were the first wood block type prints made in Japan. Each page was printed in bold wood block print, decorated with mica, silver and gold. Matohu has created new patterns inspired by these carved woodblocks, printed with real mica, and having a texture which suggests Japanese washi paper.
