Initial A is Niitsu's first lithographic print in her research project: “Works on Paper as the Fundamental Medium of Communication". She began the experiment with stone lithography at a historical print shop called Atelier IDEM in Paris.

This print shop has used the same lithographic limestones and printing presses for over 100 years. At IDEM she learned that lithography was the starting point of the reproducible image and mass media.

For her initial foray into lithography Niitsu utilizes an ink wash technique to create her spontaneous patterns. This allows her to establish a dialogue with the uniqueness of each individual stone.
