About Us

SCRIPTUM is located near the University of California in Berkeley, across the Bay from San Francisco. Margrit Schurman CEO and Founder of SCRIPTUM, is an Alumni of the University, with a higher degree in History of Art, a subject she then taught for years.

Subsequently she became the Founder of the nationwide chain of PAPYRUS fine greeting card and paper stores.

SCRIPTUM was established in 1999 and deals in JAPANESE PRINTS, particularly Prints of the late 19th and 20th century - Shin Hanga and Sosaku Hanga - and in Contemporary Japanese Print Artist.

As dealers in Japanese Prints, SCRIPTUM collects and sells fine, limited edition Prints by many of the well known Artists, many of which are listed on the SCRIPTUM website.

However, our Website lists only a sampling of the hundreds of Prints we have available. Please, therefore contact us with whatever may be of interest to you.

In addition, we promote contemporary Japanese Artists of special promise and endeavour to arrange exhibits for them in the USA.

Collecting Japanese Prints and purchasing them for display in Home or Business ..is a great pleasure; the Prints are elegant, expressive and evocative in design; they are the result of a tradition of a history of fine workmanship, using quality papers that date back to the 16th century.

A Fine Print appreciates over time . Once a numbered edition has been completed, the original block is usually destroyed and Prints become Collectors and Museum treasures. The purchase of a limited edition Print is therefore a good investment, as well as a source of great, lasting enjoyment.

Please browse and enjoy our Website and let us know if we can help you in acquiring a beautiful Print. If you do not find what you are looking for, let us know if we can help you find it in our extensive inventory.
