Limited edition Japanese cement mortar block print pencil-titled “Poem 68-36,” indicating production in 1968, by Maki Haku (1924-2000). Pencil-signed, titled, and numbered 29/83 in the bottom margin. The artist’s square red seal is at the lower left corner of the image. This print features the highly embossed ideographs characteristic of Maki’s work. The designs were created by inscribing on wet cement. 20 1/4” x 9 1/4.” The print is very faintly sun struck in the margins, but is in very good clean overall condition. One piece of archival linen tape is on the top back edge. Barely noticeable tiny scattered foxing spots about the size of the tip of a pin are scattered throughout. There is a small brown spot on the back edge that looks like a fingerprint.
