Woodblock print making, Oct 2014 (42 images)
The Adachi Foundation for the Preservation of Woodcut Printing works to preserve the original techniques of Japanese woodblock printing. Classic ukiyo-e from the Edo period are painstakingly recreated using original tools and methods, and sold to the public. As well as recreating old prints, the foundation commissions contemporary artists to produce new ukiyo-e designs. The foundation trains and employs young artisans to ensure the future of the art form.
