Jennifer Moon x The Fire Monkey for Hammer Museum

Artist Jennifer Moon and bookbinder George Busby of The Fire Monkey have collaborated on a book project, a part of the “Made in LA” exhibition at Hammer Museum!

This is an especially interesting collaboration for Hiromi Paper as well, because when Jennifer had been searching for a local bookbinder, we were the ones that first recommended George at The Fire Monkey; whom we’ve had a close relationship with for many years. We are so glad this collaboration worked out, and together they created such a wonderful book!


The book itself is a half leather-binding with a gold leaf pressed emblem on the front, a logo that Jennifer had made especially for this show.
Inside papers are inkjet prints on all Amate Solid Natural. Continue reading “Jennifer Moon x The Fire Monkey for Hammer Museum”

Dynic SK Bookcloth

We have had some inquiries this year about special ordering Dynic bookcloth, but were unable to contact our Dynic representitive at the time. Luckily, we were able to get into contact with the company recently (and find out that it hasn’t been discontinued) and are now working on starting the special orders again. We are also planning to carry some of them regularly so we would be able to sell them by the yard to customers. Therefore, if you have any feedback on interested cloths you would like us to carry, please let us know soon.

Text Libris: More Colors Available

In addition to the Text Libris colors we carry regularly in stock, rolls of additional colors can also be ordered! For now, you can view the complete set at our store displayed in our Bookbinding section. Feel free to call in to make your order as well~


Minimum quantity for non-regularly stocked colors is 1 roll (10 meters).

This bookcloth is made in France and are 100% biodegradable and free of heavy metal.

Dynic SK Series

At HPI, the Dynic/Buckram SK bookcloth series was discontinued for regular stock and on a special order basis only. We recently tried to contact the SK bookcloth makers in Japan for some special orders, but did not receive any response despite the different attempts. So, at this time we will have to hold off any SK orders until further notice.
