• Hokusai's Mount Fuji: The Complete Views in Color

    This complete collection of Hokusai’s famous views of Mount Fuji is the only high-quality reproduction of these engravings, long considered the Japanese master’s greatest works. Taken from the best engravings available and shown in splendid color, this authoritative volume is the first of its kind since 1830. Hokusai’s influence extended far beyond Japan, even to French Impressionists including Degas, Monet, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Each illustration is accopmanied by detailed notes placing the work in its cultural and historical context and exploring the symbolic themes running through Hokusai’s landscapes.

  • Hokusai: Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji

    Hokusai's beloved series of woodblock prints is now available in a stunning new format that honors the Japanese bookmaking tradition and illuminates the artist's radiant colors and exquisite lines.Hokusai's series depicting Mount Fuji is widely considered to be the pinnacle of his career. This beautiful boxed accordion-fold edition comprises the full set of forty-six prints (the original thirty-six and ten more that were completed later) and features a luxurious silken binding along with a separate explanatory booklet. The book and booklet are packaged in an elegant slipcase. Devoted entirely to landscapes, Hokusai's series shows Mount Fuji from various viewpoints, framed in different ways. An indefatigable traveler who was passionate about nature, Hokusai explored every vantage point and season at the volcano. He presented it both as a solitary and majestic snow-capped peak and as a smaller object on a distant horizon. Hokusai also portrayed the mountain as an element in Japanese daily life and as an imposing force of nature that can be peaceful and beneficent, or ferocious and unforgiving. These impeccably reproduced prints invite readers to examine Hokusai's virtuosic use of color and composition, his talent for contrasting perspectives, and his interest in the dueling roles o...

  • 36 Views of Mount Fuji: On Finding Myself in Japan

    In 1980 Cathy N. Davidson traveled to Japan to teach English at a leading all-women’s university. It was the first of many journeys and the beginning of a deep and abiding fascination. In this extraordinary book, Davidson depicts a series of intimate moments and small epiphanies that together make up a panoramic view of Japan. With wit, candor, and a lover’s keen eye, she tells captivating stories—from that of a Buddhist funeral laden with ritual to an exhilarating evening spent touring the “Floating World,” the sensual demimonde in which salaryman meets geisha and the normal rules are suspended. On a remote island inhabited by one of the last matriarchal societies in the world, a disconcertingly down-to-earth priestess leads her to the heart of a sacred grove. And she spends a few unforgettable weeks in a quasi-Victorian residence called the Practice House, where, until recently, Japanese women were taught American customs so that they would make proper wives for husbands who might be stationed abroad. In an afterword new to this edition, Davidson tells of a poignant trip back to Japan in 2005 to visit friends who had remade their lives after the Great Hanshin Earthquake of 1995, which had devastated the city of Kobe, as well as the small town where Davidson had lived ...

  • Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount Fuji

    Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount Fuji Fugaku Sanjurokkei I’ve long been a fan of Hokusai, and love the 36 Views of Mount Fuji series, so I put this little book together for myself with images of the prints in the series that I have collected over the years from various public sources. It turned out so well, I thought others might find it useful, so I decided to make it available to others using the amazing technology available today. This book simply contains a small (about 4" x 6") full-color copy of each of the 46 prints (sic: 36 Views has 46 views in it) in the series 36 Views of Mount Fuji. I use the book as a reference and reminder. There is no commentary or discussion, just the pictures, with the name in English & Japanese (romaji & kanji). I’ve indexed each picture with keywords, so if I want to find one with a ferry boat, the ones with snow, the one with the little turtle, or the salt gatherers, I can find them in the index. If you are interested in Hokusai’s work, you might find this book as useful as I have.
