Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e in the early 1950s. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.
Late Spring at Massaki - Terrific Hiroshige print from one of his many "Famous Places in the Eastern Capital" series depicting springtime along the river. Boatmen pole their craft along the water, the torii gate to the temple at Massaki at the left edge of the print. In the foreground, visitors take a ferry across the river to visit the shrine. Beautiful color and fine bokashi shading in this attractive design.
