This book is a lavishly presented celebration of the classic Japanese art of woodblock prints. Through the 18th and 19th centuries this form dominated visual art in Japan and remains today as a major influence on the graphic arts.After a short introduction to the history and technique of this art form, the book features a stunning collection of beautifully reproduced examples of masterpieces of the genre -- accompanied by short biographies of the artists -- many of which are already familiar images the world over.
