Japanese Woodblock Print Ukiyo-e Girls Und Panzer
We collaborated with Japanese leading characters and craftworkers who inherited traditional techniques for more than 400 years since the Edo era and produced real ukiyo-e prints. All the processes were carried out manually by craftsmen who raised the traditional technique to the limit, and finished one by one carefully. Ukiyo-e, a valuable cultural heritage of Japan that is highly acclaimed worldwide, is revived with the highest-class technology and quality. ~HOBBY STOCK Ukiyo-e Art series~
