print method and motif -3

モチーフと印刷-3

1 September 1969, Japan
Moss Balls
definitive

These two stamps are showing gleaming squid and ‘Marimo’ Moss Balls, both in the water.  The coarsely finished paper and 2-3 coloured Gravure printing are cost effective and matching very well to the motifs – translucency of squid and reflected light on fish and delicate surface of the Moss Balls…  Spot-on job!

水中のマリモが描かれています。ざらっとした紙の質感に2~3色で重ねたグラビア印刷のけっして高価ではない手法ですが、濃淡の調整が細やかで、マリモの表面の細かな水泡と魚の背が水上からの光を反射させている様子などが巧みに表現された丁寧な仕事です。
