Hanji Edition 2018 is the first portfolio of its kind in North America, specifically designed to highlight the versatile potential of hanji as a substrate for print. It features hanji prints by five invited artists employing print processes ranging from letterpress, intaglio, mokuhanga (Japanese woodcut), giclée, chine collé and painting.
The prints (shown in the gallery below) are accompanied by a handbound, full-color booklet with letterpress printed hanji covers, containing artist information and an essay by Chunwoo Nam of the Print Art Research Center in Seoul. The portfolio is housed in a custom-made Japanese box with a removable hanji-lined tray. This edition is now sold out.
We are excited to announce that Hanji Edition 2021 is now underway. Our second portfolio includes an international group of five invited artists working in printmaking, calligraphy, book arts, fiber arts and papermaking.
This collection features five prints and sculptural objects made with or on hanji; some are dyed with natural materials like lacquer, indigo, amur corktree and day lily. The collection will be accompanied by a handbound pamphlet with naturally dyed, letterpress printed hanji covers and will be housed in a custom box enclosure. This limited edition of 20 portfolios will be available for purchase in early 2022. Sign up for future release news.
