Series; Osaka Nichinichi Shinbun
Osaka Nichinichi Shinbun - Rare design from the Osaka newspaper "Nichinichi Shinbun" (Daily News), which featured woodblock illustrations of stories from various newspapers. These often sensational images depict contemporary events in the news, including murders, robberies, and assaults, as well as some positive stories and even supernatural occurrences. Rendered in lively colors, each illustration is accompanied by a story in text. Two winged cherubs hold the title cartouche, an interesting Western touch. Nishiki-e or illustrated newspapers became popular during the Meiji era, first in Tokyo, then in Osaka. The Osaka designs are much rarer, and unlike their Tokyo counterparts, are most often in the smaller chuban format. A great choice for a collector interested in Meiji woodblocks, or kamigata-e, prints from the Osaka region.
