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 Bay of Noboto in Shimosa Province - Handsome view of men and women gathering clams in Noboto Bay at low tide. Two men carry baskets filled with shellfish, while young children play on the beach at left, chasing each other beneath the small of the two torii gates. The gates add interest to the composition, the diagonal lines of the beams contrasting with the organic forms of the foliage along the shore at right. An interesting design, nicely shaded.
