  • 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.

This edition presents a full-color reprint of Hokusai's enduring masterpiece, plus his black-and-white series, One Hundred Views of Mt. Fuji.Hokusai created thousands of woodcut prints based on the traditions, legends, and lives of his countrymen. The artist blended Western perspective with traditional Eastern techniques to reinvent the art of the Japanese print. His timeless images achieved their greatest popularity in the West and influenced generations of artists, most notably Van Gogh, Monet, and Degas. Published in the 1830s, The Great Wave is Hokusai's most familiar vision of Mt. Fuji. This compilation, which depicts the sacred mountain from many angles and in all seasons, is a must for all lovers of Japanese art and woodblock prints of the floating world.

  • Utagawa Hiroshige's 36 Views of Mount Fuji

    ‘Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji’ - in Japanese Fuji Sanjū-Rokkei - is the title of two separate and distinct series of woodblock prints by the Japanese ukiyo-e artist Utagawa Hiroshige (1797-1858), also often known as Andō Hiroshige, depicting Mount Fuji in differing seasons and times from a variety of different places and perspectives more than 150 years ago.The 1852 series was made in landscape orientation and was obviously influenced by the earlier similarly titled series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji by the master artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) which was published between 1826 and 1833. By contrast, the 1858 series are set in portrait orientation.In this volume Cognoscenti Books offer the full 1858 series of 36 prints, together with 6 supplementary prints and an essay on the Life and Times of Utagawa Hiroshige. The ukiyo-e woodblock prints are all high quality and in full colour. 43 historical images.
