Works by one of my favorite artists, Takeo Takei (1894-1982). These prints come from one of the jewels of my collection -- a handmade artist book that a friend found for me on a recent trip to Japan. It would be nice to own the original prints, but that is never going to happen.

If you want to buy all 139 handmade books by Takeo Takei and have $45,000 to spare, go here.
