Hiroshige: 30th Anniversary Edition
Hiroshige (1797-1858) was one of Japan's last great artists in the ukiyo-e tradition. Though he captured a variety of subjects, his greatest talent was in creating landscapes of his native Edo (modern-day Tokyo) and his final masterpiece was a series known as "One Hundred Famous Views of Edo" (1856-1858).
This resplendent complete reprint pairs each of the 120 large-scale illustrations with a description, allowing readers to plunge themselves into Hiroshige's beautifully vibrant landscapes. The large inner book is softcover, but comes in a lavish hard fold out slipcase. The book appears much more deluxe and expensive than cost.
Softcover in fold out case. 272 pages Measures 10" X 12 1/2"
