About This Item

  • Book cover like new - pages clean, bright and unmarked – spine like new.
  • Jacket like new, slight edge wear.
  • Proceeds benefit Friends of the Library.
  • "Honest and reliable service - every book hand-packaged with care."

The art of ukiyo-e (the floating world) originated in the city of Edo (16031867, now Tokyo), when the political and military power of Japan was in the hands of the shoguns. Comprising six essays, six plate sections and over 600 illustrations this beautiful book provides a perfect introduction to the art of this period. The paintings, scrolls and prints reproduced here demonstrate not only the new urban pleasures of the theatre, restaurants, teahouses and geisha, but also Japans love of nature and tradition. Professor Calzas accessible style provides a fascinating yet scholarly study of such masters as Hokusai, Hiroshige and Utamaro.
