Imagine life in Edo, Tokyo, from the 17th-19th century. In the early modern period there were many Ukiyo-e shops which sold woodblock prints displaying then-current styles and fashions much like our fashion photography and magazines today. Each Ukiyo-e work was sold individually, and people bought the beautifully printed sheets of paper to keep up on trends of the day and/or to enjoy the art-works by displaying them on their walls as interior decor.
This art book features cats humorously and satirically depicted by Utagawa Kuniyoshi (1792-1892), an outstanding Ukiyo-e great master. Sixty pages of these beautiful reproductions are removable, so that one may re-use the Ukiyo-e for many purposes (decoration, writing, wrapping, collage). The backside of each sheet of fine Japanese paper includes elegantly simplified designs based on the featured Ukiyo-e designs.
Cats By Kuniyoshi is a wonderful gift for lovers of Japanese art, and for anyone fond of cats.

Описание: The story of the 47 ronin - a band of samurai who became masterless after the enforced seppuku (ritual suicide) of their daimyo, Asano Takumi-no-Kami Naganori - is a legend which stems from a true historical episode of deadly revenge during the period 1701-1703. This tale remains one of the most enduring myths in Japanese culture as an exemplar of bushido, the samurai code of honour, which demands loyalty and glorifies vengeance and death. The story of the 47 ronin became widely popularized in Japan through the stage play Kanadehon Ch shingura ("Treasury Of Loyal Retainers"), written by Chikamatsu Monzaemo and Takeda Izumo in 1748. As the popularity of woodblock prints (ukiyo-e) increased in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, Ch shingura became a favoured subject for many of the art-form's leading practitioners, including Utamaro, Toyokuni I, Hokusai, Hiroshige, Kuniyasu, and a young up-and-coming artist named Gototei (later Utagawa) Kunisada. Kunisada returned to the subject of the 47 ronin in 1864, at the age of seventy-nine, with a new series of 48 prints (including an additional "ghost samurai"). Despite this advanced age, the images he produced rank amongst the finest of his career, and this 47 Ronin stands near the pinnacle of his achievements. Kunisada's 47 Ronin remains one of the greatest (but rarely celebrated) ukiyo-e series of the late Edo period. This Ukiyo-e Master Special edition of Kunisada's 47 Ronin contains not only Kunisada's complete set of 48 samurai prints, reproduced in full-size and full-colour, but also reference prints from Kuniyoshi's classic series of 1847, complementing each image. The book also features A.B. Mitford's definitive Legend Of The 47 Ronin, the first English-language version of the story from 1871. This text is illustrated with 47 Ronin prints by various other classic ukiyo-e artists, including Yoshitora, Yoshitoshi, and Kunichika, bringing the total number of colour prints in the book to over 100. Ukiyo-e Master Specials is a new occasional series highlighting individual print sets by classic ukiyo-e artists.
