The price will $250 in the United States, $260 in Canada. All proceeds will be donated to the Japan Society’s Earthquake Relief Fund.
The drawings were created as cover illustrations for the DVD release of the Yasujiro Ozu films The Only Son and There Was a Father. The images are melancholic and truly elegant.
“In addition to the two prints,” noted a statement released yesterday by Drawn & Quarterly, “all orders will include a small original sketch by Adrian Tomine, personalized to the name of the purchaser.”
