Kaiun Bridge and Daiichi Bank in Snow - Beautiful image of a tranquil winter's day with pedestrians under umbrellas and a rickshaw crossing the stone Kaiunbashi. The Daiichi (First National) Bank building dominates the horizon, with a few dark birds in silhouette against the gray sky. A handsome composition. Published by Meijimura in 1960 with publisher's information in right margin.
Woodblock reprints - In the 20th century, artists and publishers collaborated to recreate famous woodblock prints for interested Japanese collectors and Westerners looking for rare designs. New blocks were made, and the prints were painstakingly printed by artisan printers in the same method as the 19th century originals - one block for each color. Woodblock reprints were an opportunity to collect and enjoy a famous design at a small fraction of the price of an original. They still are today.
