【Sharp Tools ‐ The Key to Improve Your Mokuhanga Carving】
Written by Terry McKenna of Karuizawa Mokuhanga School.
The third is an extra edition ~ Sharp Tools ~.
Terry's calm gaze analyzes the sharpening of the chisel, which many printmakers are worried about.
There is also a section for "Mini Hiscare" and "Dia-Care", which are the original sharpeners from MICHIHAMONO,
and Terry came all the way to our company for this part.
There may never have been a book that explains sharpening in such detail!

【Mokuhanga Fundamentals - Core Skills to Successfullly Make your First Japanese Woodblock Prints】
Written by Terry McKenna, a mokuhanga artist from Australia who is currently active in Karuizawa.
During the corona pandemic, Terry created this material that generously shows off the know-how
about woodblock prints that he has developed so far.
We have succeeded in making it into a book through a joint project with our company, Michihamono.
This is the first basic edition ~Fundamentals ~ and is a full-length English explanation
that has never been seen before, and I would like to recommend it to overseas woodblock print fans.
Enjoy woodblock prints with a huge amount of information and easy-to-understand explanations by Terry!
