From Library Journal
Starting in 1834, renowned 19th-century Japanese printmaker Hokusai began publishing his three-volume series of woodblock prints of Mt. Fuji. The original edition, known as the falconfeather edition, is here reproduced in a duotone process on ivory paper. The resulting plates demonstrate Hokusai's mastery of composition and of the monochrome technique that uses nothing but black and shades of grey. The lucid introduction and commentaries on the plates provide details of interest to specialists in the field, but the book is also suitable for general readers and interested laypersons. Kathryn W.
