Passe-partout: The black passe-partout in the photos is a standard size, and it would not fit this diptyc. Here it just shows how nice it can be in the right frame. For this diptyc, we recomend a made-to-measure passe-partout and frame. Please look at different designs under the "inspiration" page where you also can get an idea of how you can choose passepartout in different colors, or keep it classic black. When you frame a diptyc or triptyc, you can also chose to to put the pictures together, or with a strip between the sheets. Please see photos under "inspiration". Always use acid-free paper, and preferably glass with UV protection.
Backing: Some antique japanese prints are restored and reinforced with ricepaper, due to there age and fragility. Please see photo.
