Today is my last day here in Tokyo, what a fantastic trip! One of my main motivations for coming was to see if there was any interest in letterpress here in Japan. While there is still a lot of room for growth as a popular craft, letterpress does have some presence here. On Sunday I had the great fortune of meeting Jitsuko Takei, one of the few professional printers I’ve come across here. She who owns and operates Sab Letterpress.
Check out her site, I’m so in love with the photography! She is also one of the three owners of an Aoyama paper store called Papier Labo. Unfortunately I met Jitsuko on Sunday and her store is closed Monday & Tuesday, but it’ll be on the top of my list next time!
