Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.

Poem by Bunya no Asayasu - Lovely Hokusai print showing workers in a large wooden boat collecting the leaves of water lilies. At right, a woman reaches a long-handled blade over the edge to cut a heavy stem, while her companions carefully stack the green foliage. The verse by the Heian era poet Bunya no Asayasu reads:

In the autumn fields,
When the heedless wind blows by
O'er the pure-white dew,
How the myriad unstrung gems
Everywhere are scattered round!

Beautiful rich color and soft shading in the water and sky. An attractive composition.
