Silkscreen on shikishi, three colors,

Limited edition, 70 copies signed and numbered
The newest edition of Tôkyô is my Garden, which I co-created with Benoît Peeters and Jirô Taniguchi, was released by Casterman in Japanese and French on June 6, 2018. Complete with a lavishly illustrated postface, this edition also includes Tôkyô’s sister story Love Hotel.
On such a special occasion, I designed this unusual silkscreen on shikishi (traditional Japanese paperboard). The drawing is taken from the original art for page 37 of Tôkyô is my Garden.
