Rare and unique wall print for lovely home decor. Titled "KAKO" by Keizaburo Tejima, a leading figure in woodblock prints.

This sweet original print of a bird on its tree is a super cute addition to your cozy home and stands out by the qualities of the details.

Keizaburō Tejima (手島 圭三郎, Tejima Keizaburō) (born 1935) is a Japanese artist and children's picture book author. He is known for his books and their illustrations. Tejima's illustrative technique is woodblock. Books he has written and illustrated include Fox's Dream, Owl Lake, Swan Sky and The Bear's Autumn.

Tejima uses a tinted wood block technique, which he sometimes supplements with brushed on paint. This traditional Japanese form allows for a good deal of texture in solid blocks of color, as well as very strong, bold lines. As one of the few Japanese artists to be publishing children's literature in North America and as the only one to be working with this graphic technique, Tejima occupies a unique position. But he is only beginning to be recognized in North America as a prominent author and illustrator, as five of his seven books, published in Japan in the early 1980s, have been available in North America only since 1986.

Having won internal acclaim (Owl Lake won the Japan Prize for Outstanding Picture Books in 1983 and Fox's Dream won special mention with the Fiera di Bologna Graphic Prize in 1986), Tejima is accumulating North American awards as well: both Owl Lake and Fox's Dream became ALA Notable Books upon their American publication, and the New York Times listed Fox's Dream as one of the 1987's ten best illustrated books.

This lovely miniature print measures 14.5 cm * 12.5 cm (5.7" * 4.8").
The passe-partout is 25 cm * 20 cm (10"*7.9").
Its mini size makes it easy to fit anywhere.

The artwork is in perfect condition, a small mark at the upper right on the passe-partout.
Please look at the picture to assess the condition.
