Silkscreen on shikishi
November 16, 2018
Silkscreen on shikishi, three colors,
24.3 x 27.3 cm (9.5 x 10.7 inches)
Limited edition, 70 copies signed and numbered
The new edition of Yukiko's Spinach was released in France on September 7, 2017 by Les Impressions Nouvelles, in its original format (French with Japanese subtitles), now fully revised and with additional material.
For the first anniversary of such a beautiful edition, I designed this new silkscreen on shikishi (traditional Japanese paperboard), in a very limited edition of 70 copies.
Three colors recreate the texture of the pencil drawing, taken from the original art for page 9 of Yukiko’s Spinach : a light yellowish gray, a medium gray and a slightly attenuated black.
Printed by Christin Georgel at the workshop "En l’encre nous croyons" (Gérardmer, France), on November 14, 2018

It will be my pleasure to offer for free one copy of this silkscreen to anyone who purchases an original pencilling from Yukiko's Spinach (only two are still available! ).
