Series; Postal News (Yubin hochi shinbun), 1875 - 1876
A Fuji Arts Special Offer Auction

Postal News - Dramatic image from a series of supplements that Yoshitoshi created for the Yubin hochi shinbun (Postal News) daily newspaper from 1875 - 1876. Often sensationalistic, these woodblocks depict contemporary events in the news, including murders, robberies, and assaults, as well as suicides, fires, natural disasters, battles and campaigns, and even supernatural occurrences. Many of the subjects are violent or even gory. Drawn with realistic detail and lively color, each illustration is accompanied by a story in a text panel above. These bold designs are rarely seen, and offer an intriguing look into the daily life of Meiji era Japan. A great choice for a Yoshitoshi collector.
