Fascinating!
9 February 2019 | by hurdgSee all my reviews

As a graphic artist with 37 years involved in various forms of print I have to say this is a very passionate entry into the technique of Ukiyo-e. The documentary embraces this culture in many ways, not only the craftsmanship involved in the printing, but the use of traditional paper and inks is utterly fascinating.

I have recommended this film to former students and to anyone with a passing interest in Japanese print making,

The phenomenal thing is how the artists have incorporated modern popular culture into this craft. The film shows the passion and devotion of all involved and should not be missed!

Streaming on TV, but should be part of ANY art curriculum.
