Unexpected mail!

What’s this, a package notice in my mailbox? Did I order something? Turns out it’s this:

An unexpected package from Japan! How exciting! Aha, I know what this is. I entered the Awagami International Miniprint exhibition (http://miniprint.awagami.jp) – the first time I have entered art into an exhibition since, well, a long time.

Turns out I am one of the first 500 entrants, and to those lucky people they have shipped samples of their papers.

Looks like 2 sheets each of 10 different papers (only half of which are revealed here). I’m looking forward to examining them more closely and trying them out!
