Omocha-e - Omocha-e are toy prints, encompassing a wide range of woodblocks designed for play or learning. Omocha-e became popular with both children and adults in the late Edo and Meiji eras. Subjects range from games, puzzles, and paper dolls to groups of household furnishings, articles of clothing, or wigs, along with construction toys to cut out and build. Others can be folded to create small booklets, or double-sided cards or paper dolls. Many feature wonderful detail or bright color. These attractive and fun prints are an interesting choice to collect or display.
- In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.
