JAPANESE VIEWS: UTAGAWA HIROSHIGE NOTECARD FOLIO

The very lovely Japanese Views portfolio of note cards showcases four Japanese woodcut images by the great Utagawa Hiroshige.  It's hard to choose a favorite among these views: The cover image of Mt. Fuji in the spring, Koshigaya in Musashi Province and The Otsuki Plain in Kai Province, both colored woodblock prints from Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji, 1858; Grounds of the Kameido Tenjin Shrine and with cherry blossoms in the foreground and boats on a large lake, Massaki Viewed from Suijin Woods on the East Bank of the Sumida River, both color woodblock prints form One Hundred Famous Views of Edo, 1856.

12 notecards, 3 each of 4 images.
