A Balmy Autumn Day Kuchi-e Print - Terrific design of a young beauty with a pensive look on her face on a fall day, as red maple leaves swirl around her. Her hair is softly piled on her head, held in place with a wooden comb and a ribbon, a few wisps escaping around her face and neck. A lovely, sensitive portrait illustration for the novel A Balmy Autumn Day. This design is featured on the back cover of Merritt and Yamada's book, "Woodblock Kuchi-e Prints: Reflections of Meiji Culture." Please note, this is a fine lithograph reproduction, not a woodblock.
