If you're new to Fuji Arts clearance, here is the best tip we can give you: Check often, because the best prints move lightning fast!

Fifty-four Chapters of the Tale of Genji - Beautiful posthumous printing of Toyokuni III's earlier Genji series "Faithful Depictions of the Shining Prince." Each design illustrates a scene from a chapter in Murasaki's beloved "Tale of Genji," considered one of the greatest works of Japanese literature. Handsome views of court life and travel during various seasons are documented with a wonderful attention to detail, including luxurious fabrics and elegant architectural settings. These prints are beautifully drawn with fine line work and vibrant color. Lavishly printed in 1897 by Fukuda Hatsujiro, many subjects feature deluxe treatments, such as burnishing and embossing, which were not used for the lifetime edition. These attractive designs provide a terrific look at upper-class Japanese life during the time of Genji.
