Frog in a Pond Ex-libris by Yasuo Kobayashi

Original Yasuo Kobayashi Japanese Woodblock Print
Frog in a Pond Ex-libris

Ex-libris Woodblocks - Charming design from a group of sosaku hanga bookplates or ex-libris (Latin for "from the library of") by a variety of artists. Pasted into the front of books to indicate ownership, these small format bookplates feature a wide variety of subjects, including landscapes, figures, flowers, objects, and animals. A few designs have pencil signatures. Many famous sosaku hanga artists have created ex-libris prints, including Azechi Umetaro, Hiratsuka Unichi, and Kawakami Sumio. Founded in 1943, the "Nippon Exlibris Association" actively promotes this genre of miniature woodblock, publishing newsletters and an annual calendar featuring works by its members. A fun and unusual collectible, rarely seen outside Japan.

Condition - This print with excellent color and detail as shown. Some prints have slight rippling from the printing process, or a couple light creases at edges. Please see photos for details. Nice condition overall.
