Book #63

Hanging Scroll

So this is probably not the first thing (or last) that I will post which falls into the "book" category only marginally or perhaps questionably. Since I have been exploring scrolls as bookbinding structures, I decided I would also include the hanging scroll. This is an example of a typical Japanese hanging scroll, or kakemono, which is intended to be hung on a wall to display artwork and calligraphy, rather than rolled and stored like the makimono (the Japanese handscroll).
