Japanese woodblock prints made in old tradition are the result of a team work of four different persons - the artist, the carver, the printer and the publisher. Each of them needed many years of apprenticeship and practical experience. An artist usually joined a school of well established artists at the age of fourteen and remained in the studio for at least four years. The apprenticeship of a carver and a printer could last for ten years.
Today, Japanese prints represent not only the woodblock printing but also a wide variety of techniques by the artists in different background and schooling.
In spite of its age, the Japanese art is still very much alive and has not lost its unique appeal of the combination of the cutting edge technique and the ancient tradition to the people all over the world.

"My print has not yet arrived....." "Should I be worried." "Could you please go into this matter..."
This kind of emails reaches us on a regular basis, nearly always from our US clients, and currently a bit more often - because the German Postal Service workers are on strike.
Please have some patience. We are located in Germany and ship by National Postal Services (DHL in Germany - > USPS in the US). This is reliable but slow. A shipment to California might even take up to 4 weeks, and this is still no reason to be worried.
We have hardly ever lost a shipment. The last one was maybe circa 5 years ago - one out of thousands. And in the worst case we - artelino - reimburse you the full amount without any hassle or paper work on your side.
We confirm our shipments with a tracking number. But we advise not to track. The tracking information for international shipments sent by National Postal Service is still not yet perfect. It is a waste of your time. Your shipment will arrive anyway.

How to Sell?
Hokusai Katsushika, 1760-1849, wrote his autobiography at the age of seventy-three. He dated the beginning of his drawing activities when he was five or six years old. In his late years he signed his prints with "Gakyo-rojin" - old man mad with painting. Hokusai was an ukiyo-e workoholic.
