DANIEL MITSUI ~ ARTIST


DEAR FRIENDS, PATRONS & BENEFACTORS:

On August third, my wife and I welcomed our fourth child, a daughter, Lux Helena. We are very happy.

I have made many new, smaller original drawings available for sale; eighteen of these appear here for the first time. I also have issued three new letterpress broadsides from Millefleur Press.

On Saturday, October first, around 7 o’clock in the evening, I will be speaking about sacred art in the hall of St. Peter Church in Memphis, as a guest of the Wojtyla Institute.

In my next newsletter, I shall display recent commissioned work, and share some plans for future projects.



              Yours faithfully,

              Daniel Mitsui
              September 2016

LETTERPRESS BROADSIDES from MILLEFLEUR PRESS

Millefleur Press is my imprint for publishing letterpress broadsides, bookplates and fine press books. I am the exclusive illustrator, designer and typographer; I collaborate with various pressmen, papermakers and bookbinders for its projects. My intention is to create printed works that are not mere reproductions, but works of art in their own right.

The three new broadsides were printed on a Heidelberg cylinder press at Rohner Letterpress (Chicago, IL) using 1920 Bond Black, a traditional printing ink made by Graphic Chemical & Ink (Villa Park, IL). The paper is text-weight Reich Savoy, a cotton paper with a wove surface.

Each of these is available colored by hand, with gold and palladium leaf details. (I have not yet finished any hand-colored versions of these to display here.)
