Tokyo Imperial Procession

Nishiki-e - In 1919, the publisher Fuzoku emaki zuga kankokai produced a series of woodblock reprints of designs by famous ukiyo-e artists which were released in folios. Each volume featured several prints, along with advertisements for products and upcoming kabuki plays in the back. The series was called "Nishiki-e," which literally means "brocade picture," a term referring to multicolored Japanese woodblock prints (see examples of covers below, not included). Includes some subjects rarely seen in reprint. These Taisho era reprints are beautifully printed, with crisp line work and attractive coloring. A great opportunity to purchase a classic ukiyo-e reprint from an interesting format.
