Sixteen unusual designs celebrate the often-overlooked art of Japanese stencil cutting, in which artisans worked with thin knives and stiff paper, reinforcing images with strands of silk before printing them on silk and cotton. These intricate drawings of carp, cranes, butterflies, and more reflect the delicate beauty of the stencil-maker's craft. After coloring, place the illustrations near a light source for glowing stained glass effects.
