Tatebanko "Gogh's Room" and Sunflower Umbrella
Tatebanko is the forgotten Japanese art of creating amazing dioramas and scenic perspectives from paper. Tatebanko was popular and widely admired from the 17th century (Edo-era) to the early 20th century. Then it all but disappeared. “It’s a Beautiful Day” has now revived and reinterpreted this simple and elegant Japanese art with two new paper craft kits. Each kit has a playful secret and interesting details that make assembly fun. With this kit, Tatebanko will undoubtedly enjoy a well-deserved renaissance.
