Muneshige Narazaki, Hokusai, Masterworks of Ukiyo-e, The 36 Views of Mt Fuji, Kodansha International Ltd. Tokyo, New York, S.F. 1982.
96 pp., 26 x 19 cm. Paper. English text. 57 colour plates.
Perfect condition, one ex libris ‘Rolf M. Degener’.

Well-known, but always fresh and astonishing are the ways Mt. Fuji is presented by Hokusai. Whether dominating the entire print or being just visible at the horizon above human activities, depicted in cool, clean colours and dramatic angles – this series must be considered as a masterpiece. On a map of Japan the locations of the views of Mt. Fuji is superimposed with the plate numbers in this book. On a Map of Edo from 1805 are printed the plate numbers of the remaining views. This is an eminently readable and enjoyable book.
