Here is another book that Tuttle Books have kindly given to me to review and, again, they have
agreed to give (given) one free copy of this book to a random visitor to my blog!
(Click here to read all of my reviews and giveaways.)
This book is titled “Japan Journeys: Famous Woodblock Prints of Cultural Sights in Japan” by Andreas Marks.
I will put the details of the free drawing for this book at the end of this post.
“Japan Journeys: Famous Woodblock Prints of Cultural Sights in Japan” is a hardcover book full of large, beautiful pictures of all kinds of ukiyoe (Japanese woodblock prints).
Mr. Marks is a historian of Japanese and Korean art and he gives explanations of the prints that show famous sights around Tokyo, Kyoto and other parts of Japan.
I have been to many of the places shown in these prints and it’s fun to see them depicted in artwork that is sometimes centuries old.
This book would be treasured by anyone interested in Japan, Japanese ukiyoe art, or artwork in general!
“Japan Journeys: Famous Woodblock Prints of Cultural Sights in Japan” can be purchased through Amazon here.
