One-sheet (26" x 40"), 3-color "2-up" Aska the magician with buddha and devils design. This woodcut features two separately but similarly themed Aska tour promotion posters side-by-side ("2-up"). The original woodcut color sequence called for red as first run of color, followed by yellow to produce orange as an additional color and render the full details of the intended design (note the small dots on the lantern which would not be present if red were printed over the yellow.
