Yuki Hikosaka and Izumi Morito, two of the hottest woodblock print artists of the moment, have beautifully rendered the characteristics of each of children’s favorite breads in their prints.
It is a parade of bread that looks more like bread than the real thing and looks delicious.
Woodblock prints vary in color depending on the temperature and humidity at the time. Bread also swells differently depending on the temperature and humidity. Smoothly printing the woodblock print without the unevenness of color characteristic of woodblock prints produces soft butter rolls, while printing the print with an emphasis on the grain of the woodblock print produces crispy baguette.
