"Forest" Washi Paper Limited Edition Print
Part of our series of ukiyo-e inspired artworks from our Magic the Gathering Secret Lair cards.
This very limited edition of 20 signed and numbered archival digital prints are made on handmade washi paper crafted in Kozy's home prefecture, Yamanashi, Japan by the craftspeople at Yamaju Paper Company. The print measures 13 x 16.5 inches (329 x 420 mm) and is signed, numbered, and stamped with our hanko (name stamp).
The "Forest" artwork of our Lands series for Magic the Gathering Secret Lair is a tribute to both the magic redwood forests of Dan's home state of California, as well as to the loss of old growth forest in Japan in the modern age. While Japan is nearly covered in forests, most of them have been logged and replanted with just one or two species of trees so that the forests are unhealthy and life struggles to survive in them. We like to imagine how majestic those forests were before this all happened!
PLEASE NOTE: Since this is edition is printed on traditionally handmade washi paper, each sheet is unique with its own set of imperfections, textures, fibers, and crinkles. This is part of their charm, not a defect!
