Kōhan Magazine 孔版. Showa 25 [1950] October. Kōhanga 孔版画, artistic mimeograph, is both a technique and a style that was rarely appreciated by others as much as it was by Japanese artists, who dedicated an entire magazine to mimography, publishing 90 issues. Post WWII, mimeography had become a popular form of artistic expression in Japan and was considered an art form alongside that of stencil printing.

The editor, Wakayama Yasōji 若山八十氏 (1903 - 1983), was an artist of Western and Japanese style painting as well as a woodblock print artist who studied under Onchi Kōshirō (1891-1955). He is considered the founder of mimography and was an active member of the Creative Print Movement.
