Description The Paperblanks Kuro Journal in the Mini size is 3.75 x 5.5 inches and Smyth Sewn for durability. It has 176 lined pages, includes a memento pouch and ribbon marker, and features an elastic band closure. Our Kuro cover showcases a reproduction of an original piece of katagami art. This particular design is an example of a katagami stencil, crafted from mulberry bark and persimmon juice. The word Kuro means dark or black in Japanese and it’s the perfect title for this shadowy design.
