2006 Michael Kenna Wall Calendar

13 Photographs
Published by: Nazraeli Press, USA

To mark the 10th anniversary of our ever-popular Michael Kenna Wall Calendar, we are raising the bar for 2006. This year’s calendar was printed by a specialty team at Toppan Printing in Tokyo, which is also responsible for production of the artist’s elegant new monograph, Hokkaido. The calendar, like the book itself, is printed on an exclusive, uncoated, natural Japanese paper using “Daido black” ink. This process sets a new standard for sharpness, extended tonal range, and richness especially suited to Michael Kenna’s work. Our 2006 Michael Kenna Wall Calendar features 13 images of Japan, a number of which are published here for the first time. The print run is limited to 2,000 copies for international distribution; as always, early orders are encouraged.
