About this title

Synopsis:

Tsukioka Yoshitoshi (1839-1892) was the most influential and prolific woodblock print artist of Meiji Japan. This book presents his masterpiece, the wildly popular One Hundred Aspects of the Moon (Tsuki Hyakushi). The series was begun in 1885 and completed just before the artist's death in 1892. New designs were eagerly awaited, with editions selling out before dawn on the day of publication. The introduction of this book comprehensively treats the artist's life and work. Each of the one hundred images in the series is shown here in full colour and nearly life-size. Opposite each design a commentary gives the story behind the picture. These wonderful tales form a panorama of Japanese history and legend that resonates with the richness and subtlety of traditional Japanese culture. This is a reprint of the 1992 San Francisco Graphic Society publication.

About the Author:

John Stevenson is a specialist on Yoshitoshi. He is the author of Yoshitoshi's One Hundred Aspects of the Moon (Hotei, 2001) and Yoshitoshi's 36 Ghosts (Weatherhill, 1983). His most recent book, Japanese Kite Prints (Drachen Foundation), was published in 2004.
