Welcome to Hanji Edition, a limited edition portfolio featuring fine art prints on hanji (Korean handmade paper) by five artists from the United States.

Hanji Edition was founded by two Korean-American printmakers, Steph Rue and Lars Kim, who share a passion for Korean print and papermaking. We have invited five different artists to create 6″ x 9″ prints on hanji, employing print processes ranging from letterpress, intaglio, mokuhanga (Japanese woodcut), giclée, chine collé and painting. The prints are accompanied by a hand-bound, full-color booklet with letterpress printed covers on hanji with artist information and an essay by Chunwoo Nam of the Print Art Research Center in Seoul. The portfolio is housed in a custom Japanese portfolio box with a removable hanji-lined tray.

The first hanji portfolio of its kind

This project is the first of its kind in North America, specifically designed to highlight the versatile potential of hanji as a substrate for print.

Hanji Edition 2022

Hanji Edition 2022 is now in the planning stages, and a second portfolio will be released later this year. Stay tuned for more updates soon.
