Floating Work Auctions (previously doing business as JWPPA) is the most successful online auction of Japanese woodblock prints, with well over $3 million in total sales to date.

Our commission is 20% of the hammer price. There are no other fees. We take care of all aspects of listing your prints on the Floating World Gallery auction website, as well as Live Auctioneers and other online catalogs, including photographs, appraisals, estimates and reserves (subject to final approval by consignor).
