  1. Neat, thanks for sharing that Pete. It is curious on the menuki backs image that the author named every part but the easiest ?, the Tanzaku mei calling them instead “Attached signature panels”.

    Still, they are very good references.

    Cheers

  2. There is also ‘kake komu kibata’ which is the flat area on the side of the menuki the mei can be carved on. If it has been left blank it is ‘kake komu kibata wo haishi’.
