For each design in the Edo Ink (Edo zumi) series Binnie produced non-tattoo versions in smaller editions of only thirty impressions. The alternate palettes emphasize the nudes themselves, juxtaposing the exposed skin against rich red or pink grounds, and eliminating the ukiyo-e references found in the cartouches, signatures and pictogram seals.
