A February $39 Market Auction, Bill's Selection. . .

Adachi Limited Edition Beauties - In 1967, the venerable Adachi Publisher of Tokyo released a limited edition series of 25 classic ukiyo-e beauty subjects. These beautiful reprints feature masterworks by Utamaro, Kiyonaga, Eisho, and others, including some subjects seldom seen in reprint. Printed with fine line work and attractive color, some designs feature deluxe treatments such as embossing or shimmering mica. Limited to 500 sets, each print is numbered on the reverse with a special Adachi publisher's seal. A wonderful opportunity to collect a lovely bijin reprint from a great limited edition release.

February Market Auctions - I’ve selected 175 prints for special market driven auctions in February. There are a range of excellent prints, from high quality and rare Edo era prints, to fine old reprints. It’s an especially nice group with each print opening at $39 selling to any highest bid! Keep an eye out for my February $39 Market Auctions and good luck bidding!
