For the sixth exchange (I
skipped the fifth), I took a hint from an old
Taisho-era kimono. It had been made with the
katagami (paper stencil) dyeing technique,
and I thought that the design would make an
interesting woodblock print.
I took the basic idea from the kimono pattern,
and rearranged it a bit for the print, which forms
a repeatable pattern when joined up vertically or
(click image for a larger
version in a 'popup' window)
It's two blocks ... two printing impressions ...
