The strokes of the kanji are strong and vibrant Yet the image is cramped on th...

dramatic kanji sun and splash This small Maki print epitomizes the Maki style at its height; the kanji streaks across the print, now it is blue now it is black; there is a strong black sun and a sharp yellow plash and the Maki seal. Yet it is not crowded. The maki seal at the right is a roll, the Maki of his name.

This striking image slices through the black background from top to bottom in a two-stroke movement. In the classic Maki mode the core image is set off by a black sun at the left and a small blue moon under it; on the other side there is a yellow splash. The regular Maki seal is used; also he used a white ink seal to add color and ve...

Haku Maki started doing his embossed prints circa 1965, these were in the main unbiased prints with the embossing coming out from he back to t he front However, I suddenly discovered that a number of prints in the 1976 - 1976 and 1977 period were done with the embossing going into not out of the front This style or process does not seem to have hurt any aspect of Maki’s work nor benefited it I have commented on this departure in style to a few friends but they have said the equivale...
