Hi printmakers!

This is a friendly reminder from the mall that if you want a case for #22 get it ordered. I have only 5 so far...and I need to place our order. These cases are a bit different but very beautiful, they close with a magnetic clasp and look so very professional. So let me know if you want one. Email me off list at

Also we still have the Yamaguchi paper (16x20" approx) and the new Iwano paper (18x24" approx) available here in Oregon. I seem to be sending it to Australia but nowhere else. If you have not tried a sheet of it and are doing moku hanga, you should try it. I think you will like it. Way better than alka seltzer.

On another note, I have chine colled my prints to a cradled wooden frame, sort of like a canvas with wood on the top that is 2" deep. I dyed the edges of the wood black. Then I used cold wax to protect the paper and wood, and buffed it when dry. Now I have prints permanently mounted that have a mat finish and no frame or glass. I am very happy with this look and think they look a bit like paintings in presentation. Of course this mean I can raise the prices....I will let you know how they are received in the gallery. These are the black and white solarplates, not the hanga. However I am thinking I can do anything this way so will try the hanga next. This reminds me a bit of the pieces stretched on wood frames we saw in Kansas City, but of course they are different as no rocks were used to make them. I still think that was one of the most amazing processes I have seen in a long time but since I have arthritis I have not tried it.
Best to all,
