Takamizawa Thirty-six Fuji Reprints - Established in Tokyo in 1911, the venerable Takamizawa Publisher was known as one of the finest reprint publishers of the 20th century, and produced some of the highest quality ukiyo-e woodblock reprints of all time. This lovely group of reprints of Hokusai's outstanding "The Thirty-Six Views of Mt. Fuji" series features attractive color and beautiful bokashi shading, a deluxe printing technique used to create gradations of color.

Each print comes loose in the original windowed viewing folder as issued by the publisher, and includes a decsription in both English and Japanese mounted to the inside of the front cover (see examples below). All prints bear the "Takamizawa" seal on the reverse attesting to the Takamizawa publication of these prints. Don't miss this terrific opportunity to acquire a fine Takamizawa reprint of Hokusai's classic ukiyo-e images. 

The Nihon Bridge in Edo - Great view of the Nihonbashi River from the bustling Nihonbashi or Nihon Bridge in the foreground, packed with townspeople and workers carrying a variety of products.

A lively view of the busy central commercial district in Edo, nicely detailed.
