Block printing was a traditional form of design used in the Arts and Crafts Movement at the turn of the century. This block print is letterpress printed using hand cut blocks and printed on acid-free hand made paper. Letterpress printing this block allows a heavy impression on the design thus creating a three-dimensional quality to the surface.
This print is designed hand printed and signed by the artist Yoshiko Yamamoto in her Washington state studio.
