Daniel Tretiak has written a book, The Life and Works of Haku Maki, the important Japanese printmaker of the second half of the 20th Century. Maki toiled alone most of the time between 1960 and 2000.

This work is now 5 years old I set forth the main aspects of the works of Haku Maki the main themes of his work the main aspects of his style and the broad range of his works. I think I did not realize in 2007 the range and versatility of his work, its drama and subtlety. Since this book was published I have written 9 research notes and many descriptions of key works.

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...
