Japanese Bridge - Dzo paper edition
One of Vietnam's most iconic attractions, Hoi An's Japanese covered bridge dates back to the 18th century and is a beautiful historical piece of Japanese architecture. It is claimed that it was created by the Japanese then living in Hoi An as a way to reach the Chinese quarter across the water.
This single layer woodcut edition is printed onto locally sourced 'giay dzo' paper with a 'so diep' coating. This means that the paper is meticulously hand made using wafer thin sheets of paper made from the bark of the dzo tree and finally coated with a light, powdered clam shell coating.
Limited edition of 25 prints, hand carved and printed from a side grain Japanese magnolia block sized 20 x 30cm.
