One of Japan’s most respected exhibitions of prints takes place this weekend, as the Tokyo American Club plays host to the College Women’s Association of Japan’s annual print show.

The star of the 57th CWAJ Print Show will be Hideshi Yoshida, a 43-year-old who creates woodblock prints and wood engravings. Yoshida became interested in printmaking in his teens. An earlier encounter with the work of M.C. Escher had opened his mind to the possibilities of artwork as optical illusion, so he soon decided to create prints in style of Escher.
