Oberon Hokusai Wave

Refillable X Large Sketchbook

“I never look at my watch when I’m sketching.” Karl Lagerfelt

The Great Wave off Kanawaga, usually known as The Great Wave, is one of the most famous examples of Japanese art in the world. It is the best known work by artist Hokusai Katsushika (1760-1849), one of the greatest Japanese woodblock printmakers, painters and book illustrators. The Great Wave was created around 1831 with a newly developed, dark blue pigment called Prussian Blue. The wave is about to strike the boats as if it were an enormous monster, one which seems to symbolize the irresistible force of nature and the weakness of human beings. (Hiroe Nirei)
The sketchbook measures 9 1/8 x 11 5/8 inches. It has 220 pages, 8.5 x 11 inches, with a lined template sheet to facilitate writing. The cover is constructed by using three pieces of leather. Tooling appears on the front because the spine piece makes wrapping images impossible. The backside is a piece of durable, long-lasting black leather. It has a matching pewter button closure.
