Hear, hear (or perhaps in this case more appropriately, here, here!)!

Re prints for exchange #26 -just finishing printing so they'll be in the
mail to John Center shortly BUT I had a question no one has discussed -is
it considered acceptable to number an edition for which slightly different
papers have been used ??? (they're all washi and the image is the same)

Greetings to all Newcomers to Moku Hanga,

To those of you who may never have done Moku Hanga before, may I
strongly suggest a visit to the Exchange Gallery page of, where the very first Baren print exchange may be
viewed by choosing Completed Exchanges, and scrolling down to 1999,
Exchange #1. The very first name on the list of participants, John
Amoss, offers a wonderful example of the technique of Moku Hanga, and
while there may be no embossment, or other surimono refinements of brass
or silver touches, in "Warm Spot", the deceptively simple steps that
John recounts for the making of this print, may embolden some of you as
it did me, to attempt all Hanga printmaking. While still tentatively
feeling my way with all-water printmaking, (and on occasion cussing a
bit) it is still a joy to attempt. Remember, 'Nothing ventured, nothing

Print! Cut
