Every few months I gravitate to my local print shop, here in Kyoto,
and discover wonderful woodblock prints, with images of plants in
many different styles and contexts.
Last week, I found a series of prints with Arisaema, Arum, Caladium,
and possibly others (the Colocasia prints I am keeping for my own
If anyone would like to have such prints, I might be able to purchase
a set and send them at cost price (print price and mailing cost).
If there is any interest in these (please indicate your overall price
limit, postage included), then I might visit the shop again to see if
anything of interest is still in stick, or newly added to the display.
The prints I have seen usually cost in the order of 10 - 60 USD,
being hand made prints, usually from blocks that are copies of famous
blocks, but sometimes also from original but less-famous blocks.
