Series; Bairei's Album of Flowers and Birds (Bairei Kacho Gafu)
Bairei's Album of Flowers and Birds - This lovely reprint comes from Bairei's series "Album of Flowers and Birds," originally published in 1883. Considered by many his best work, this beautiful series features birds paired with flowers for each of the four seasons. Depicted in their natural habitat or perched on striking floral arrangements, the birds are carefully observed and beautifully drawn with a wonderful attention to detail, as are the flowers and plants. Handsome choices for display, these attractive woodblock reprints are a fine choice for a bird or flower enthusiast. Beautifully printed by Uchida with publisher's seal in margin.
