I have been lax at getting new images up anyplace, but will try to
find the time to get some up, soon. I don't know how you are planning
to slide the block into the kento strips, Barbara, but if they are
inked and then put into the kentos why would they offset? Must be
something I am not seeing here. I have an old register jig I made
eons ago for hand burnished oily ink blocks and never had any problem
with them offsetting if that's any encouragement...

Here's the info on the LA printmaking demonstrations coming up this weekend at the Japanese American Cultural & Community Center:


The Japan Foundation is pleased to announce that we will have Japanese Woodblock Print Demonstrations this September.

Japanese traditional woodblock printing is widely considered to be a world-class art form. We will invite two lecturers and one printer from the Adachi Institute of Woodcut Prints in Japan and they will travel to 7 cities (including 4 cities in California) in the Western United States for lecture/demonstrations. These rare events will provide an in-depth view of traditional Japanese printmaking, demonstrating the printing process through one of Japan's most famous images, Katsushika Hokusai's "The Great Wave Off Kanagawa".

The original woodcarving of this striking image was recently rediscovered in the vault of a Museum of Fine Arts in Boston, and the skilled artisans of the Adachi Institute were chosen to make new prints from the original. The artisans will show this valuable technique to the public by recreating the image in full, showing the many steps involved in the printing process, finally revealing the image's original, vibrant colors.

Mr. Isamu Adachi, Head Director of the Adachi Institute
Attending the following cities: Seattle, Santa Fe, Los Angeles and Santa Barbara

Ms. Meguri Nakayama
Attending the following cities: San Diego, Portland and San Francisco

Ms. Chiharu Enomoto Attending all cities
