Box Set / 作品セット

This limited edition set of 40 artworks is housed in a traditional Japanese hand-made paulownia wooden box. Since ancient times, paulownia wood has been used for a variety of purposes in daily life. The paulownia box plays a supporting role for keeping what is stored inside safe. However, it is also a work of art in itself. Paulownia is carefully handcrafted by skilled craftsmen and each wooden box is made with soul.

The bespoke wooden boxes, containing the 40 Kwaidan prints, were made by Kobayashi Soichiro at the Paulownia Wooden Box Factory in Osaka, Japan.

In a limited edition of 25, each of the 40 prints has a paper size of 34cm x 42cm and all are printed on a variety of paper types.

Editions for Chie Matsui, Miida Seiichira and O Jun were proofed and printed by Satoru Itazu at Itazu Litho in Tokyo.
Editions for David Quinn, Alice Maher and Nuala Clarke were proofed and printed at Nomad Studios in Dublin by Stephen and Richard Lawlor.
The edition for Richard Gorman was proofed and printed by Kate MacDonagh at her Studio in the Model Arts Centre in Sligo.
The edition for Barbara Rae was produced by Ian McNicol at his studio in Ayr.

A booklet with essays by Paul Murray and Bon Koizumi is included in each box. This booklet was screen printed in Dublin by Siobhan Hyde and Ed Miliano.

Price: €17,000/¥2,640,000 for full box set. Prints are not sold individually.
