Yoshiko Yamamoto of The Arts & Crafts Press has produced a limited edition, signed, and numbered block print of the Log House. Yoshiko, a Tokyo native, is well known for the Japonesque prints and note cards that she produces using antique letterpress printing presses.
She visited Craftsman Farms in July to begin the project. Yoshiko describes her experience as “sketching the Farms from many angles, running away from pesky bugs, sheltering from thunder storms, and reflecting on the grand visions of Gustav Stickley.” She then returned to her studio in the state of Washington to design and print the multi-colored block print. In the beautiful block print shown here, each color is printed from a separate block to achieve her desired effect.
The signed block print will be available for $40 in the Museum gift shop beginning Saturday, January 17. Don’t forget we are now open year-round on weekends from 11am to 4pm!
