Hi Peter,

Do you have two prints laid down onto a scroll vertically, or do you actually have a painted scroll? This would make all the difference.

If the prints are laid down onto a scroll, you might want to have them removed for preservation's sake. I never recommend framing though.

If a painted scroll, please leave it as it is. I don't know about others, but I find it jarring and unpleasant when an Asian painting is taken off its rollers and stretched out like a Western canvass.

: Hello- I don't know very much about woodblock prints and just received what I think is a Kakemono - a woodblock print on a scroll. It was packed in a wooden box and is rolled up. The fabric of the scroll is yellowed and seems fragile; what is the best way to store/display this object?

: After searching a bit I saw one for sale, framed - is that the way to go? My guess is that the wood (which may contain acid) may not be great for the print...

: Thanks!
