This year has seen The Tokyoiter continue to grow and display more amazing covers from artists around the world. We organised our first solo exhibition in Tokyo, meeting so many great people, and were lucky enough to be featured in a variety of websites and articles. Thank you to everyone who has shown an interest in The Tokyoiter over the past 2 years. We greatly appreciate everyones comments and emails so far!
We were also inundated with requests to purchase covers from all over the globe. To make sure we honoured the amazing work of all the artists we searched all over Tokyo for a printer that could provide a hi-quality finish on traditional Japanese Washi paper. We were lucky enough to find Matsudaira-san and his lovely 'Atelier' printing studio in Tokyo (www.matsudaira.co.jp) whose expertise and enthusiasm matched our own for the project.
After months of planning we are finally able to announce a date for when people will be able to purchase some of the amazing artwork! On November 1st we will debut our online shop, via our website, that will offer a first wave of covers. This first collection will include 9 covers, limited to ten each and will be available until December 31st 2017*. Throughout 2018 we will continue to make different selections of covers available for a 2 month period. Each time a new batch is available we will announce it on all our social network sites ahead of time.
Thank you again to everyone who has shown an interest in our project.
*Any covers purchased before November 27th will be printed and sent in December in the hope of arriving before Christmas (not guaranteed). Any purchases during December will be printed and sent in January 2018.
