May 2020: Many Web images are newly revised to show more of the depth and texture of the original prints, with no sharpening or contrast adjustments. At the same time, the full-screen images appear much faster on the screen. The new images are shown as in recent exhibits, with high-power magnets securing them to metal tacks in the wall. I like the simplicity, and the texture of the etching paper or washi is revealed this way. Each full-screen image page now includes the ink, paper, sizes, and tirage -- tirage meaning how many impressions have actually been pulled from the copperplate.

The tirage number includes the total number of impressions purchased, plus those on hand. Viewers are invited to submit bids for the prints they are interested in. If a bid is accepted, simply enter that amount into the convenient link, and the print is yours...

International air shipments may be possible now (July - August 2020), depending on airline availability, though viewers are cautioned to expect delays. Please send an email message to find out the current situation. Within Japan, there is no interruption of deliveries.

To viewers working at home: It's more important than ever to put artwork into your daily surroundings -- not as decoration, but as a journey of imagination. Real intaglio has depth, and texture, and variety of tone that no screen can ever match. It expands your world when travel is paused.


Photogravure etchings are a visual experience like none other. Printed with richly pigmented inks on hand-made European etching papers or Japanese washi, their unique depth, texture, and tonality project an extraordinary three-dimensional quality. Below the images on this page, please scroll down to About the artist, links to the story of what makes these prints possible, to various Series of inter-related images. To select what fits your own surroundings and style, click any of the images below, or those in any Series, to see them full-screen. Then order from that page if the price is shown, or if not shown, submit a bid.
