The center page engraving was hand-printed using a metal plate on Hasegawa ganpi paper and attached to the book with a fine thread, leaving as much freedom as possible for the handmade paper. Ganpi plants are wild plants and are sensitive to changes in temperature and humidity.

The book’s cover was printed on handmade “Inshu Washi” papers by Udo Haufe using a Grafix -proof press- of the Grafikwerkstatt Dresden.

The bookbinding of the cover has been done by hand by Bettina Mönch.

The book “RESONANZ / 共鳴”is supported by the Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen.
