Avatar the Last Airbender (ATLA)
ATLA's setting is roughly based off of 1700's China. During one of the episodes, the protagonist runs into a fortune teller who is able to read the future via the clouds and their forms. The Book of Clouds shown below uses cut wood, traditional binding techniques, leather straps, and ink to create the fortune teller's family heirloom.
The prop following is a passport for a very wealthy family within the same kingdom of the fortuneteller. Specialty paper and ink were used to depict the pass and tickets it is used to obtain.
