In late 2011 I received several maki prints of 1981 these all have leather like surfaces: I thought this was a phenomenon of that year. I was wrong Maki actually used this surface in 1971 for a few Persimmon prints and then not again until 1981 I show here copies from my Maki archives. When we filed those images a long time ago, they were not clear enough, are still not. But I think they are with that leather like finish. Any views Most gratefully received...

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 Maki print has had a charmed existence. It was printed in Japan in the mid-70s, just as Maki was beginning to leave the production of prints with kanji as the main theme and start doing then with Ceramics, mainly in the Collection series. This is the second print of his long ceramics series – some of which were simply entitled as this is with the year 75-59. This was done in 1975 and was a quite large edition 201...

Poem 70-72. This striking Maki Big Red has had a long history for being just 40 years old. It has seen the world and is now back in Asia, in Beijing. This is as near to Tokyo, where it was created by Maki, that it has been in many years. In this case, the big red letter is the hiragana "chi" ‚¿ or shiru, which means to know, find out, to learn, or have knowledge...

This is a surprisingly good kanji It was done in 1972 slightly beyond Maki’s core period for such small kanji. It is the kanji for Mu or Nothing It is a very abstract character more so than most of Maki’s rendering of Nothing this image is sharp it is concise and it has drive. It has the Maki style and balance : a seal and the bottom margin. It looks sharp the seal at the right is balanced off by the splash at the left

Haku Maki did quite a number of prints using persimmon as a main theme Probably well over 100 He also began doing prints with ceramics around 1980 He probably did more than 100 ceramics theme prints. But the two there only came together in the persimmon and blue vase print shown here (and in an equally rare one with a persimmon and a strikingly beautiful yellow vase,) “This persimmon and vase print was done in the mid-70s and is quite rare: I have only seen the one shown here...

From 1969 to 1974 Haku Maki produced about 15 Big Red prints and some Big Blue and Green. This one Poem 71 52- was done in 1971. It depicts the kanji for Power. 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...

Haku Maki was an important Japanese modern print maker of the second half of the 20th Century. In the 1970s his work consisted of many abstract images of Chinese characters, kanji. Most are quickly recognizable by Chinese and Japanese. This one has befuddled and even annoyed some Asians who normally like Maki kanji...
