Unfortunately Japan Post has suspended shipping to most countries due to the inability of those countries to deliver incoming mail. As such, until further notice I have reluctantly suspended international shipments. Japanese domestic shipments have no delays. I cannot predict when shipments to international destinations will recommence; it may be several months, and possibly even longer, but in any case artwork purchases will be safely stored here.
|Notes:||Rare - from the limited edition (15/300). Pencil-signed and editioned by the artist. Red Tatsumi seal and characters in lower right of image. Nakagawa carver's seal and Ono printer's seal in right margin. Title embossed in bottom margin. Nihon Hanga Kenkyusho seal also in bottom margin. Compare with same print on page 183 of the book "The Female Image, 20th Century Prints of Japanese Beauties".
Prints from the 300-print limited edition were housed inside a green or red Japanese 'tatou' case as seen in the image below (case not included).
Caution: prints from an open (= unlimited) edition are often sold as being from the limited edition strike. A true limited edition print by Tatsumi will have either the edition number written on the print, or one or two thin red seals in the margin. Please see my research note on the various editions here.
