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 considered 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 traditional silk 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. Extremely popular in their time, these prints had a profound impact on the development of 19th-century European painters such as Édouard Manet, Claude Monet, and Vincent van Gogh. 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 of man and nature. An exquisite objet d'art, this volume is the perfect vehicle for appreciating Hokusai's crowning achievement in all its lasting and subtle beauty.

Utagawa Hiroshige's two Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, 1852 and 1858 are both a copy copy act and in themselves innovative artistic endeavors. Katsushika Hokusai published his famous series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji in 1830-1832 and it influenced Hiroshige tremendously to his own series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series 1852 which we deal with here.It is in the same horizontal format for landscapes that Hokusai used. In a subsequent series Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji published in 1858 Hiroshige shifted to the vertical portrait format with novel and interesting results. We will deal with that in a separate volume.It is possible to travel to see the same sites today and enjoy the views of Mt Fuji, which are still very important to the Japanese.

"Last year the East-West Center Press had the pleasure of publishing Hiroshige's The Fifty-three Stages of the Tokaido. That volume was so well received that this year the Press presents this companion volume of forty-six prints by Hokusai. By creating the landscape print, Hokusai breathed new life into the art. He became one of the greatest innovators of that field. Hokusai and Hiroshige are ranked among Japan's gifted and certainly most popular artists, and both made their marks with sets of prints depicting the Japanese landscape. Hokusai chose Mount Fuji as his theme, and Hiroshige chose the famous Tokaido. The volumes reproducing these two beautiful sets of woodblock prints comprise the highest achievement of the art of ukiyo-e. They are available separately or as a set, handsomely boxed. The historian or student of art will find them not only valuable to own, but also a sheer delight to read." -- Publisher's description

Mount Fuji is renowned worldwide as Japan's highest and most perfectly shaped mountain. Serving as a potent metaphor in classical love poetry and revered since ancient times by mountain-climbing sects of both the Shinto and Buddhist faiths, Fuji has taken on many roles in pre-modern Japan. This volume explores a wide range of manifestations of the mountain in more recent visual culture, as portrayed in more than 100 works by Japanese painters and print designers from the 17th century to the present. Featured alongside traditional paintings of the Kano, Sumiyoshi, and Shijo schools are the more individualistic print designs of Katsushika Hokusai, Utagawa Hiroshige, Munakata Shiko, Hagiwara Hideo, and others. New currents of empiricism and subjectivity have enabled artists of recent centuries to project a surprisingly wide range of personal interpretations onto what was once regarded as such an eternal, unchanging symbol.

This magnificent boxed set includes a silk- bound volume of stunning, accordion-fold, color reproductions of Hiroshige's complete series, accompanied by a separate booklet with background and descriptions of each print. Roughly twenty-five years after Hokusai released his series of ukiyo-e prints depicting Japan's most recognizable symbol, Hiroshige took on the subject as well--a common practice among the era's printmakers. This volume features reproductions of the horizontal version of Hiroshige's woodblock series, first published in 1852, and which reveal a mature artist working at the height of his powers. In the background of each of the views Mount Fuji is featured under varying vantage points and changing lights, towering over sites of sublime beauty, often animated by a few characters living in harmony with nature. These exquisite fold-out plates are perfect for appreciating Hiroshige's eye for composition, his nontraditional use of line, and the subtle gradations of color and mood. Viewers can also learn much about daily life and culture in 19th-century Japan through carefully applied detail and symbolism. In his introductory booklet, Jocelyn Bouquillard provides captions for each print, as well as an appreciation of the remarkable and painstaking process of woodblock printing. Packaged in an elegant slipcase, these volumes reflect the beautiful artistry and traditions that are embodied in the prints themselves.

Hokusai's 36 Views of Mount FujiFugaku SanjurokkeiI'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.

In winter of 2018 we returned to Japan but this time focused on channeling the artist Hokusai and asked the question of what Mt. Fuji means to us. We consider Japan our spirit place and are always yearning to come back and go deeper in our exploration of the people and the landscape. This new work moved us out of the city of Tokyo and into the countryside. We wanted to live under the ever changing appearance of Mt. Fuji and experience its burning energy. Creating an ambiguous narrative with our women as they played out an imagined life under the strength of the mountain and beyond the edge of the frame.

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 and the university where she taught. 36 Views of Mount Fuji not only transforms our image of Japan, it offers a stirring look at the very nature of culture and identity. Often funny, sometimes liltingly sad, it is as intimate and irresistible as a long-awaited letter from a good friend.

This profusely illustrated volume presents groundbreaking scholarship on the Ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) and his immediate artistic and literary circles. Achieving worldwide renown for his dramatic landscape print series, such as the "Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji," Hokusai also excelled in book illustrations, erotica, and privately commissioned woodcuts called "surimono." Aspects of the artist's innovative and novel approach to the graphic arts are discussed in the first half of this volume. Less well known, Hokusai was a highly accomplished painter who oversaw a studio of several close pupils, including his daughter Ti, who often worked in a style closely resembling his own. The study of Hokusai's corpus of paintings thus raises many complex issues of authorship, dating and authenticity -- further complicated by the abundant production of forgeries both during and after his lifetime. An appendix of recognized Hokuzai seals helps further clarify this aspect of the artist's work. The distinguished roster of contributors includes: Asano Shugo, Gian Carlo Calza, John T. Carpenter, Timothy T. Clark, Doris Croissant, Kobayashi Tadashi, Kubota Kazuhiro Roger Keyes, Matsudaira Susumu, Matthi Forrer, Naito Masato, David Pollack, John M. Rosenfield, Timon Screech, Segi Shin'ichi, Henry D. Smith II, and Tsuji Nobuo. The publication is sponsored by the International Hokusai Research Centre at the University of Venice and the Sainsbury Institute for the Study of Japanese Arts and Cultures (SISJAC), London and Norwich.
