Nishiki-e - In 1919, the publisher Fuzoku emaki zuga kankokai produced a series of woodblock reprints of designs by famous ukiyo-e artists which were released in folios. Each volume featured several prints, along with advertisements for products and upcoming kabuki plays in the back. The series was called "Nishiki-e," which literally means "brocade picture," a term referring to multicolored Japanese woodblock prints. Includes some subjects rarely seen in reprint. These Taisho era reprints are beautifully printed, with crisp line work and attractive coloring. A great opportunity to purchase a classic ukiyo-e reprint from an interesting format.
