Japanese Woodblock Prints - 40th Ed

The Japanese woodblock print is a phenomenon with no Western equivalent. Breathtaking landscapes exist alongside blush-inducing erotica, ghosts and demons torment the living, and sumo wrestlers and kabuki actors are rock stars. This condensed edition revisits the most exceptional prints from 1680–1938, presenting the finest impressions in museums and private collections worldwide.

“A quarter-millennium’s worth of prints reveal the evolving tastes of Japanese artists over the ages, and the impact of this art form on global culture.” The New York Times
