Art you can live with — photogravure etchings in residences

Photogravure etchings from The Kamakura Print Collection add an intriguing accent to many interiors. Most are printed with Carbon Black inks, some with Orient Blue, Payne’s Grey, Burnt Umber, and Sepia inks; and one with Laque de Garance ink (see if you can find it). The colors are light-fast for at least as long as etchings and engravings have been made — since the 15th century. An infinite variety of tones and textures from hand-made papers and Japanese washi reward continuous viewing.
