A WORD OF EXPLANATION
A concerned frankophile and toy collector writes, " I feel I must have a set of those black-and-white Frank and Pups standettes, and as an informed fledgling art collector I realize that the letterpress prints that accompany the deluxe versions are a steal. But I have very little wall space in my Tokyo apartment, and finding room to hang or store the prints is just too difficult."
Oh no it isn't! These prints, though made from full-sized drawings, have been reduced so that they fit into the boxes the standettes come in.; that is, the Frank print is 4.75" x 7" and the Pups print is 4.75" square. Printed on Arches paper, they come bagged with a stiff sheet of protective acid free paper.
And I must reiterate; what beauts they are! You can perhaps see in the illustrations above the relief created by the deep impressions of the copper plates into the paper. This explains the uniquely sumptuous clarity of these little masterpieces of the printer's arcane craft. You can find out more at http://jimwoodring.com/shopsite_sc/store/html/index.html
