Description: These prints date from the 1970s/80s, and were made by the Kajikawa workshop, which was hired to produce a folio containing 20 triptychs (60 prints all). They were made at a reduced size (29.5 x 19.5cm) from the original Edo-era prints, which were in the large o-ban format.

As part of that large project, they decided to include a special group of prints - a set of six designs created by Utamaro in the 1790s. Each of the six prints actually stood alone as an independent design, but when placed in a group, they formed a single large image - Edo townspeople on, and below, the bridge at Ryogoku.

So we too have collected these together, and are selling them as a group of six. How to display them? The original prints back in the Edo era were printed with no margins, so they could easily be mounted together (pasted on a backing sheet, etc.), but these prints have quite wide margins, so it is not so easy to make a single panorama from them …

Well … that’s your challenge!

(More information on the design can be found on this Wikipedia page).
