A stunning book!

Honestly its beautiful, the pages are not attached to the physical cover so its much easier to view the pages. The pages are doubled over so its a little strange, but it does not make it hard to read and view the book. The prints are good quality, and are stunning.

A beautiful collection of images that have a small description on the opposing page as a little background information. The book is hard to get hold of which is a shame because I honestly believe anyone who is a fan of

I got this book from the Library so that I could study some of the Japanese wood block prints. This is a coffee table - picture book. The descriptions of the different images are very educational for learning about Japanese culture, history, and life.

Glorious prints of Hiroshige's famous series. The book itself is 10" x 14.5" & each print fills its own page.

Ahora mismo me parece el libro más bonito que tengo en la estantería. Una edición de lujo para un artista que con pocas líneas y pocos colores conseguía transformar viñetas cotidianas en arte.

Simply beautiful.

Such beautiful landscapes! I really liked the simplicity of it all. And the descriptions at the side really helped to add depth to the pictures.

A beautiful coffee table book made from a set of 129 prints from Hiroshige. The book was discovered at the Brooklyn Museum of Art library, donated in the 1930s. Each print describes the Tokyo scene and what was unique to this place when the print was crafted in the 1850s. This book and the Hiroshige/Eisen prints book of the Tokaido trail, are the best seen to date.
