Captured Ayomi Yoshida Block Prints on my way to 'Room and Board' Restroom

My mind was not firmly set on a topic for this week 'Tokyo Thursdays' until i walked up to second floor of Room and Board store in Soho (New York) where I was for Annette Joseph Picture Perfect Parties (Rizzoli USA) book signing and caught sight of Ayomi Yoshida block prints.
