Fine printing from the respected Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha - These classic designs were produced by the well known Tokyo publisher Oedo Mokuhansha amidst a resurgence of interest in ukiyo-e. Like many of these traditional businesses, the woodblock print craft was passed down through generations, and the Oedo Mokuhansha company was formed by descendents of an Edo era publisher. These are nice prints of the highest quality standards and an excellent choice if you are looking for fine old woodblock reprints.

Crescent Moon Behind Monkey Bridge - Handsome view of the famous Monkey Bridge spanning two high cliffs with a waterfall cascading down the mountain on the right side. A crescent moon rises below the bridge against the darkening sky. Nicely detailed with fine bokashi shading. The publisher has added a wash of tan color to the paper to simulate an aged appearance.
