Late 19th century
12 x 18 cm
Generously illustrated woodblock text.
These texts include characters such as courtesans, geishas, teahouse mistresses, warriors, sumo wrestlers, actors of kabuki theatre and other characters from the literature and folklore of the time.
One will find imagery of beautiful women, sensual imagery, demons, bird and flower pictures, and renditions natural landscapes.
Although different artists brought their own signature styles, the pictures were weaved by a common look and feel that utilized aerial perspectives, precise details and clear outlines.
There is considerable wear and tear to the very thin paper and covers. Most images are intact.
If there is interest, I will provide other details/information available prior to purchase.
