Inspire your Creative Spirit with HAPTIC ARTBOOK
Each HAPTIC ARTBOOK contains 96 pages of blank Haptic Paper (11×16 cm) to fill with your creative artwork.
Touch, draw, write, and glue photographs on the uniquely textured pages. Embark on your ETERNAL RETURN TO CREATIVE EVERY DAY.
Zó paper is durable and resilient to dust and humidity, making it one of the strongest archival materials. Zó paper is also 10% lighter than normal notebook paper, making it lighter to carry around on your artistic adventures.
Aesthetics of Beautiful Imperfections
Zó paper brings to life the vibrancy of each photograph adding a haptic, textured, and “wabi-sabi” beautiful imperfections to every ARTBOOK edition. Each page is unique, made of organic, textured materials.
Story behind ARTBOOK
Each book is handmade using the traditional Vietnamese process of Zó papermaking that has existed since the 13th century and requires over 100 steps. The paper is made by Vietnamese paper artisans from the bark fibers of a mulberry tree.
This ARTBOOK features a limited edition of color photographs by Eric Kim. Each purchase directly supports the Vietnamese community of traditional artisans and preserves the craft of Zó paper and book making.
Now go forth and make art.
