A brilliant original handmade Japanese woodblock print that has such a beautiful print quality.
Woodblock prints are made by hand carving a wooden block with a design. The design is inked up in single or multiple colours. Handmade Japanese rice paper is then placed on top and a baren (circular hand press) is rubbed repeatedly over the back of the paper to transfer the ink to make the print. Often multiple wooden blocks are used to make an image. Japanese rice paper absorbs the inks like no other paper type and this makes the colours of the prints intense and rich.
