Awagami

New on the Information Farming Tools page at Eastgate, we've got a shipment of Awagami Orihon Notebooks.

These accordion-fold books are a traditional Japanese format, and they invite some really interesting, page-breaking moves. You can use them like a regular notebook, but when you need more space they unfold like scrolls or screen.

I'd like to see what sort of things new media folk do with these. They're very light, colorful, acid-free, and they're part of an old, old craft tradition.
