Doi's earliest "primary printer" was Yokoi (YOKOI, Giichi; 1894-c1980) who produced prints continuously for Doi from the period of about 1936 to 1965. The prints made from the association Doi /Yokoi / Harada were done between 1936 until 1956.
Pictures: Pictures are taken outdoor, in the shade, to reflect true colors, without any enhancements of any kind. The last picture is taken indoor, with a light behind the print, to reveal the exact paper grain, holes if any, or other possible flaws.
