ISBN 9784861526275

Idea Code 17413

With a career that bridged the final years of the Edo period and the first years of Japan’s modernisation following the Meiji Restoration, Tsukioka Yoshitoshi is widely recognized as the last great master of the ukiyo-e genre of woodblock printing and painting. Concerned with the loss of many aspects of traditional Japanese culture, he became an avid proponent of working in the old manner and was one of the greatest innovators of woodblock printing before it was eclipsed by mass reproduction methods like photography and lithography. This beautifully illustrated book features numerous of Yoshitoshi’s ukiyo-e prints themed around ghosts, spirits, and all things supernatural.
