Description: Ayumi Shiba is one of the young ladies working at Mokuhankan in Tokyo, in multiple capacities: she works in the shop helping explain the prints to visitors; she hosts the Print Parties; and she works as a staff printer, creating work to be sold to customers and subscribers.

But she also moonlights ... as a modern printmaker, and this print is one of her creations - from concept, through design, and all the carving and printing ... herself.

Shiba-san's comments: 'Since morning glories open in the morning and close in the afternoon, they symbolise ephemeral love. However, since their tendrils twist themselves tightly, they also represent their bond to a lover.

'In Japan, spiders weaving their webs in the morning is a lucky omen. It means that someone will come to you, that true love will undoubtedly show up at your door.'
