About This Portfolio

Miyashita's limited edition portfolio, published in 1995, of essays and prints about Manhattan. Containing a 4 page brochure (with table of contents and colophon), along with six prints (two prints using woodblock and intaglio techniques, and four etchings) housed in a tri-fold portfolio with cardboard slip-cover, the portfolio was the fourth of eight works published in conjunction with Gohachi Shobō by Miyashita. The heavy-weight paper used in the book was made by Yamada Shōkai located in the Higashichichibu Washi Center, Higashichichibu. In 2014, along with the neighboring village of Ogawa, Higashichichibu received UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage Status for keeping the ancient traditions of Japanese paper making alive and flourishing.
