Sorry for taking time out of your schedule. I'm a student at the Minneapolis College of Art and Design in Minneapolis, MN. In my Graphic Design 1 course we've been assigned to create a booklet documenting and recreating various ages of design, one of which is old type (and it must be in a foreign language). To do so, we are to take images and text from contacts with other people around the world. I have taken it upon myself to study Japanese typography. Considering wood block printing survived the Japanese movable type revolution of the 1640's and was used in tandem with it I thought it would be rather important to include a work or two in that genre.

In short, your piece "Firey Ginkgos" fits what I need perfectly. It's the same color scheme I've been working with, it's really close to what the original woodblocks looked like, and it's a beautiful piece of print-work. I would greatly appreciate it if I could use that image in my project. You would, of course, be credited. The exact copyright information currently under your piece on this site would go directly under the picture in clearly legible type. This is not a book that will be published, 2 copies will be made (one for my professor, and one for myself), so I will be making no money off of your design and it is for purely educational purposes.

Thanks for your time,
Mitchell Lewis

I'm so sorry that I missed your comment. I was busy with my new baby and haven't logged onto Deviant art in nearly two years.
