Series; Famous Bridges in Japan

Pontoon Bridge at Sano in Kozuke Province - An interesting pontoon bridge crossing the Karasugawa River in Kozuke Province. A beautiful winter scene with a few travelers making their way along the unique bridge gently curving over the wide river. Beautiful soft shading in the water and sky. An excellent design.

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.
