Kintaro Publishing

At Kintaro Publishing we offer originals from the artist itself…
...but also very high quality reproductions.
In order to achieve this we have the whole production process into our own hands.
So we can check and control every single print from start to finish.

  • Kintaro Publishing is great to work with. They did a fantastic job with a fine-art photography project of mine. I'm super happy with how it turned out! Extraordinarily giclée prints. True gallery quality - made with great craftsmanship, love and personal care. Highly recommended!Paul Cupido (Studio C72)
  • Awesome book! If you're into ethnographic tattooing or just a collector of books. This is one for the shop or shelf! (Jeroen Franken)Kian Forreal
  • Already a killer artist when he first burst onto the scene, Wytse somehow manages to grow with every single thing he puts out. Just imagine where he'll be five or ten years from now. (Strong Design, Bold Will Hold)    Bartmann (Peter Pan Speedrock)
  • One of the most beautiful show posters we've had! (Strong Design, Bold Will Hold)Triggerfinger
  • Wytse Sterk is an amazing craftsman who's designs are visually incredibly strong and lucid. Every one of his designs is automatically recognizable as one from his brain and hand. Not only a very gifted artist but one with a true signature. (Strong Design, Bold Will Hold)   Eric Corton
  • The large format of the book, along with the superb photography and the extremely high production values, really show off the tattoo work within to its best advantage. (Dutch Tattoo Studios)Total Tattoo Magazine
  • It doesn’t surprise me, because nothing comes out of Alex Binnie that isn’t radical and direct, outspoken and clear. A true celebration of how one should stand in life. Honest till it hurts. (The Woodcut Portraits)Henk Schiffmacher
  • With his unique vision André van Zomeren documents the interesting work of the best. (Dutch Tattoo Studios)Tattoo Life
  • Clean Solid Tattoo Flash is a no-brainer for serious studios and collectors.Skin Deep Magazine
