more detail
Experience the humorous and satirical Ukiyo-e world of Kuniyoshi Utagawa.

In old Tokyo, known as ¡ÈEdo¡É during the early modern period, fashion snaps and entertainment magazines came in the form of ¡ÈUkiyo-e¡É (¡Èpictures of the floating world¡É). There were many Ukiyo-e shops in Edo, which sold various woodblock prints, just as news agents or book shops sell magazines or posters today. Each Ukiyo-e print was sold individually to customers, who bought these beautifully printed sheets of paper to learn the most up-to-date trends of the day, and who also sometimes enjoyed them as artworks or as interior decor by displaying them on their walls.

Following the success of Cats by Kuniyoshi and Surprise! by Kuniyoshi, this new title showcases 60 art reproductions of various animals featured in the woodblock prints of the outstanding Ukiyo-e master UTAGAWA Kuniyoshi (1792-1892). Sparrows, foxes, whales, goldfishes, octopus and many other animals are depicted humorously and satirically alongside human subjects.

For added interest, each of the 60 prints can be removed easily, offering today¡Çs readers a fun and authentic way to appreciate Ukiyo-e. The simple, yet unique, design on the back side of each page offers readers even more creative ideas.
