Mikumo is the name of the Japanese publishing house founded by Mikumo Mokuhansha in 1921. It currently still operates as a publisher of various woodblock artists, including Inagaki Nenjiro, Ogo Tomonosuke, Kawabe Atushi, Minagawa Taizo, Chiudo Kenichi, and many others who were also often textile designers and ceramicists. Woodblock prints from this publishing house will often be found with the artist's red seal but with the name "Mikumo" pencil written in the margin to signify the publisher - a common occurrence in the traditional Japanese print world.
