A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

One Hundred Views of Mt. Fuji - Handsome design from Hokusai's three volume series "One Hundred Views of Mt. Fuji." The series was devoted to the sacred Mt. Fuji and reflects the importance of the mountain in the everyday lives of the Japanese during the Edo era. From land and sea, throughout the seasons, Mt. Fuji appears majestic with an appealing sense of permanence.

Original Edition by Unsodo - This woodblock was printed by Unsodo Publishing of Kyoto in the 20th century from the original Edo era blocks, with the addition of a soft peach color. The venerable firm of Unsodo was founded in 1891, and is one of just a few Japanese woodblock publishers still in business today. These Unsodo woodblocks are a nice way to acquire Hokusai's classic imagery.
