For Holiday Season's poster, from left to right: Silent Night, Reindeer and Tree.

Poster: Silent Night
In this poster, the lyrics of "Silent Night" is letterpress printed with gold ink by using the vintage metal types that are set by hand. The impressive red paper is made by Arjowiggins, a famous British paper manufacturer. The surface of this paper is coated with a starch which is discharged during the processing of potatoes such as French fries, and therefore it has a unique texture. Despite its strong and distinct color, it gives a subdued impression that is not too flamboyant.

The posters are hand-printed one by one by the designer himself using the letterpress printer with vintage metal types that are set by hand. Please read on here for the precaution related hand-printing before you make your purchase.

Poster: Reindeer
This poster is made using the hatching (thin and parallel lines) technique that is often seen in old encyclopedia illustrations. The reindeer with the red scarf is a new original illustration created by the designer himself. The red scarf adds a splendid color to the holiday season.

This poster “Tree” is used a technique called Furikin (sprinkling fine powder). By applying this technique, it has a subdued brilliance that cannot be expressed by ordinary gold ink and is also different from foil stamping, and so its splendor blends in with your interior.
The Furikin process was often used to decorate the edges of diplomas and certificates in the past, but it is now rarely used because it takes a great deal of time and also due to the recent development of the foil stamping technique. In general, the Furikin is conducted by printing a transparent paste with an offset printer and sprinkling brass powder on it. However, this poster took advantage of the fact that letterpress ink does not dry easily, and so it is first letterpress printed the gold ink, and sprinkled brass powder on it before the ink gets dry, and then removed the excess brass powder after drying the ink.
Since Japanese lacquering technique (Makie) is also a technique of sprinkling gold dust on Japanese lacquer (Urushi), the same tool is used to make this poster and the designer himself works on it.

Pure brass changes its color as time passes. As you touch more with your hand, the color nicely settles.
