Surimono - Surimono are an exclusive subcategory of Japanese woodblock prints. Poetry clubs commissioned these designs for distribution to a small audience of members, most often as New Year's greetings. These privately published images included a wonderful range of subjects and lavish printing techniques such as embossing, burnishing, and metallic pigments. Since surimono were not sold commercially, the print runs were very small and original Edo era surimono are incredibly rare in the market today. These fine quality suriomono reprints offer a great way to collect these classic designs at an affordable price.
Comments - Lovely surimono print of a bow leaning against a rack of arrows next to a target on a wooden stand. A handsome plum tree bonsai in a ceramic pot rests on the floor behind the target. A terrific subject with fine delicate detail.
