Hokusai: One-Hundred Poets

Hokusai: One-Hundred Poets Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Morse (Honolulu Academy of Arts) examines the series of prints in the context of all of Hokusai's works, and explains the importance of the "One Hundred Poems" anthology within Japanese cultural life. This volume assembles for the first time reproductions of all 89 images and thus displays the extraordinary range of Hokusai's pictorial imagination and powers of invention. The extraordinarily fine printing was done by Dai Nippon (much of it in color). The poems are rendered in English and (Romanized) Japanese. Exceeds the high standards of Braziller.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

Synopsis:

The advice offered by the lively images from the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries featured here is sometimes comically anachronistic, but is often evidence of a remarkably modern sophistication concerning balanced eating, sleeping, and exercising.
