Historical Context:
Master print maker Takeshi Takahara uses the Intaglio process to produce his dramatically beautiful prints. A professor of print making and drawing at the University of Michigan School of Art and Design, Takahara prefers the process of print making as a medium because it allows him to develop and revise each piece in the process. He prints using Japanese gampi paper for its strength and transparency, applying it to curved wooden slats and sealing it with persimmon juice.
