Adana 21-J

Printed using an Adana 21-J hand letterpress machine.

Details

This is a reworked version of the flying toriis found in the opening titles of Kuhaku. It was printed in an edition of 20.

Location

Produced down a back alley of Asakusa in a two person design shop. The room was small and sunlit. It was a Saturday morning. We drank Japanese tea and ate Japanese sweets while mixing paint.

Several times local residents stopped and peered through the windows.
