'Sailing in Akashi Bay, Evening' Woodblock Print
This print was originally designed by Kawase Hasui in the early 1900s, about one hundred years ago. Hasui was one of the most prolific shin-hanga designers of his day. You can actually watch him work in this old post-war film, which someone has kindly shared on YouTube.
I've teamed up again with apprentice printmaker William Francis to produce this handmade print. William is in the early stage of his career, so his experience is still growing compared to David Bull. This means you get this print at a much lower price, and that your purchase directly supports William in his training. We thank you for investing in the future of this craft!
This item measures 4.25 x 6.75 inches (11 x 17 cm). The paper is handmade kozo washi from Japan. Every print is numbered.
