In celebration of Japan Week, and in partnership with the University of Michigan Center for Japanese Studies, AADL staff present a demonstration of Gyotaku – the art of fish printing.
Gyotaku dates to the mid-1800s, and was originally a form of record keeping, but it has evolved into an art form. In this brief demonstration, you'll learn the tools needed to make your own prints from real or artificial fish. The AADL staff use a set of synthetic fish for printing.
