Emperor’s hat / 天皇の烏帽子

September 2, 2009


10 November 1915,  Japan
Enthronement of Emperor Yoshihito
designer: Chuichi Isobe
engraver: Shigeo Morimoto / centre, Kingoro Mizutani / frame

I could not imagine quality of typography print until I saw this stamp in fresh.  Although it is off centred when it was printed, the plate had been very neat and carefully curved.  Expression of shadow behind the hat is excellent.


凸版彫刻:森本茂雄(中央部)/ 水谷金五郎(輪郭)
