Hi Bareners,

I bought the hard copy Lulu book for the colophon.

Maria, you have done a superb job in preparing this book! Organized very well and accessibly. I was impressed with the reproductions of the blocks in the Lulu book, my block and others came through very well done.

I received the book within 4 days of ordering it, here in eastern Ontario! It is well worth it.

Good work, Your Excellency the Mayor !

AND it is true, one learns something new every time you look over the whole print, so kudos to everyone!

Thank you, Oscar!
When I started putting it together I wanted to save space so it wouldn't be so long. But I really wanted to give tribute to each participant so I just kept the one page per participant format. Took me about two weeks but I got it done!

I'm thinking of making a book for the first two projects, so that there is a record of all three, maybe in my spare time...

Subject: The Kunimasa print is ready!
Posted by: Dave Bull

Big day! Another printer joins the 'stable'! The Kunimasa actor print that Fujii-san has been working on recently was finished yesterday afternoon, and plenty of them are 'good to go'!

As we mentioned before, she printed them 'heads and tails' on strips of washi; this is because the blocks she is using were originally part of the Hanga Treasure Chest series, and those prints were made two at a time - printing two together, and slicing them apart when done. This time, Fujii-san used just one half of the block, then flipped the paper to make her second impression on any given sheet.
