No book goes uncovered in Japan. It’s partly for protection, partly for style, and partly to conceal what you’re reading. If these sound like to reasonable objectives to the book lover in you, consider Tatami Book Cover by Japanese craft purveyor Tokyo Kitsch.
Craftspeople construct each Tatami Book Cover from natural soft rush to form the durable, flexible and aromatic tatami sheets. These are handstitched along with a decorative brocade lining and a built-in fabric bookmark. Best suited to standard Japanese bunkobon paperbacks or any book sized 105 x 148 mm and smaller.
Colors: blue, yellow, light green, mauve, red, black, green
