Just a quick glance at the Handbook Album with Cover of Embroidery Dragon lets you know that you are looking at something special. Very special.

Exquisitely and precisely handcrafted, the cover presents traditional embroidered Chinese styling that remains striking and remarkable to any modern viewer. Surrounded by traditional Chinese plants, the dragon tastefully complements the background without ever quite blending in. The result is a subtle yet memorable cover that can be considered a piece of art unto itself.

But the perfection of the album does not end at the cover, the inside pages are specifically produced to allow any artist to easily make this entire album a work he or she can be proud of for years to come.

To prevent bleeding to the back of the page, the paper is a two-ply, unprocessed and unsized Xuan paper. Though it provides a perfect calligraphy medium because of its exceptional softness and absorbency, it also is water reserved. What this means for the artist is that as soon as the ink touches the page, it is "locked" the shape of the object is immediately captured in its intended form so as not to distort the original purpose of the artist.

All of these qualities add up to make the Handbook Album with Cover of Embroidery Dragon perfect for writing any type of calligraphy script, no matter what your writing preference is. And going further, this versatile album also serves as a great material for Sumi-e writing.

Further enhancing the front cover is the rectangular orange vertical stripe in the upper left hand corner. This will serve as a perfect place to add the title of the album. Since artists likely will want to own more than one of these treasured and handmade albums, this provides a great way to distinguish between albums.
