Fish Printing at the Manchester by the Sea

During the Art Reception at the Manchester by the Sea Historical Society on Sunday, there was a demonstration on the art of fish printing.  Such fun.

Gyotaku (魚拓, from gyo “fish” + taku ” stone impression “) is the traditional Japanese method of printing fish, a practice which dates back to the mid-1800s. This form of nature printing was used by fishermen to record their catches, but has also become an art form of its own.
