SAKURA SPRING 2018 LIMITED EDITION

Cherry blossoms hold special significance to us along the Atlantic. For a brief, brilliant window in time people come from all over to view the Cherry Blossom Festival in Washington DC, where thousands of trees burst with tiny pink and white flowers. The DC tradition began in 1912, when over 3,000 cherry – specifically sakura – trees were donated to the city by the mayor of Tokyo. However, the significance of sakura watching goes back even further, and it’s with this ancient tradition hanami in mind that our latest limited edition was created.

The Japanese tradition hanami – literally meaning “flower viewing” – is a centuries-old custom celebrating the ephemeral nature of life. Because blossoms on sakura trees only last for a very short period of time (about a week), they are a perfect representation of this concept, inviting viewers to reflect on the beauty of rebirth, renewal and the transience of mortality.

Sakura inspired us to embrace new beginnings, which is why we’re introducing something totally different for us with this release: saddle stitching! The Sakura Limited Edition notebooks are bound with rose gold staples, and the covers are printed letterpress in three tones, showcasing a cherry tree in bloom. We printed the internal pages with a 4mm graph, which we find to be totally versatile for note taking, practicing penmanship, or plotting out illustrations.

Whatever your purpose may be, we hope that this edition inspires you to embrace the ephemeral things in life, whether it be a cherry tree in bloom, or a fresh notebook to fill with ideas.
