  • Visual Arts of Japan publication collection

    The Visual Arts of Japan publication collection is a compilation of books that include many detailed pictures of woodblock prints from various Japanese artists. Woodblock printing in Japan (木版画, mokuhanga) is a technique best known for its use in the ukiyo-e artistic genre of single sheets, but it was also used for printing books in the same period. The presumptive creation dates of these are, at the earliest, 1804, and at the latest, 1955. Many of the books have multiple volumes, and are related to themes such as nature, seasons, portraits, cartoons, everyday life and in some, aspects of studying and teaching concepts. Most of the books have no publisher linked to them. These books range from 20 pages to upwards of 50 pages long.
