Japanese Kirigami Book

One of my weaknesses is Japanese craft books. Call it my crafty kryptonite if you will. When I see one of those glorious books I go weak in the knees and feel the instant sensation to buy, buy, buy! And so was the case last weekend when I walked into the Kinokuniya bookstore. I had met my match with this Japanese Kirigami book. Like a tractor beam, it locked on to me and pulled me in with its exquisite crafts. Below are a few pictures from the book which should illustrate why.

I haven't had any luck tracking this down in the US.
Sasuga books accepts special orders and if the book is in print, they can get it for you.

I would fall in love with this book too. The butterflies on the cover are so pretty, and I especially love the circle patterns ... so lovely. Japanese craft books are also my kryptonite, so Kinokuniya is dangerous!

Ah, shame on you. Now I have to add this to my "Must Have" list ...
