Description

By Lorenz Bichler and Melanie Trede

Hiroshige (Japanese, 1797-1858) was one of the last great artists in the ukiyo-e tradition. Literally meaning "pictures of the floating world", ukiyo-e refers to the famous Japanese woodblock print genre that originated in the 17th century. Though Hiroshige captured a variety of subjects, his greatest talent was in creating landscapes of his native Edo (modern-day Tokyo). His final masterpiece was a series known as "One hundred Famous Views of Edo" (1856-58). This complete reprint pairs each of the 120 large-scale illustrations with a description, allowing readers to plunge themselves into Hiroshige's beautifully vibrant landscapes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Simply beautiful This was a gift for my son, who is studying Japanese history and culture. I wasn't sure what to expect but this book exceeded all of my hopes. Beautifully bound and absolutely gorgeous! Of all the gifts my son received, this one has been the most attended to. He handled it with great care and worried that I had spent a great deal more money than I should have. We couldn't be happier!
