Catégorie : One Hundred Selected Views of Paris in Lithography by Akagi

Afterword

In this album are one hundred of my engravings of Paris, now augmented to 105 in this, the latest edition. I describe each with notes for those who collect of my pieces. Some people found it useful as a Paris guidebook but it not intended as one, rather my own version of Paris’ story as of 2014. I particularly asked the French and English translators to follow the original Japanese text as much as possible even though it is not necessary to translate word for word.
In the past to make one print, many specialist workers were engaged whereas today with only one person pressing a button copies can be made: those days are long gone. So many historical workshops and traditional studios for engraving, lithography, silkscreen and stencil have disappeared in Paris; each work of this album are the last memories of those days. To every specialist who has assisted in producing my work I extend my sincere gratitude.
