New Print Series ... Opening Day!

Posted by Dave Bull at 1:49 PM, February 19, 2010

Well, the 'teasing' went on a bit longer than I intended ... as getting the website ready took a bit of doing, but I am now finally ready to make the announcement on what I will be doing for the next couple of years after the 'My Solitudes' print series wraps up next month.

As may have perhaps been obvious when I talked about 'on your desktop' the other day - I am doing another in the 'Hanga Treasure Chest' series. Perhaps you didn't realize that this was going to be a 'series', and perhaps I didn't either! But it seems like a very good choice for a project for the next year or so ... given that it seems to be important to be 'price conscious' these days.

Here's what's it's going to be about:

- a set of 18 prints, issued one per month from April 1st 2010
- the set will include a beautiful wooden storage box (being made for me by craftsmen here in Japan)
- the prints will not be the small hagaki (postcard) size prints of the previous Treasure Chest, but rather the larger ko-ban size (13.5 x 20 cm - about 5 x 7 1/2 inches)
- the series will have a theme, and that will be:

'The Mystique of the Japanese Print'

What do I mean by that? Please visit the website to find out!

A couple more things to note:
- the pricing for this set is very aggressive. The prints will be $35 each, an astonishing price for what they are. This quality of print, and this level of production ... to go out at that price ... is a very special chance for collectors.
- on top of that - there is an 'early bird' special bonus gift available for all people who send in their order before March 15th. (I have to pay the casemakers up front, and you are going to help me do that!)

I am very excited about this series - I know, I say that every time! - but I fully expect this one to sell out over the next six weeks, before we even get under way! Please visit the site and learn more about the plans for this project.

For what it's worth, I have never been more tempted by one of your projects. I have loved watching your work over the years but really didn't think I could afford it. This one seems like an aggressive offer indeed! I wish you the best with it!
