I have a print by Shiro Kasamatsu with this seal that I have not been able to identify.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Thank you!

      Thank you! The last one seems to be 摺. But the previous one ...? I've never seen this on other prints. Hopefully there is a specialist who can say more about this edition.

  • This print is one of five images that Shiro Kasamatsu did of Tokyo University. I'm unable to find the source (I really should find and add it to the catalog website!) but what I've read is that these 5 images were reissued after his death by the University, the blocks provided by his family, and printed by students as a limited edition. I believe the reissue prints have that embossed seal.

      Dear David, that's a lot of interesting information. Thank you for it. If you ever find the source, please let me know.
