The Ten Ox Herding Print Series is a collaboration with my friend Shinji Asai.
It is our version of the 10 part series of short poems and drawings used in the Zen tradition called Ten Bulls, or Ten Ox Herding.
Shinji wrote the story in Japanese for each of the 10 steps and Tim Crowe translated it into English.
The Kanji and stamp is made by Shinji's brother Junichi Asai.
We hope to make it into a book at some stage, but for now it is just a series of prints, and a first version of a booklet printed in Japan that you can check out below. We accidentally printed an early version, so apologies for any spelling misstakes 😀
Thanks for having a look!
