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.

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.

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.

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.

'The Great Wave' is a colour woodblock print designed by Japanese artist Hokusai in around 1830. The print, of which numerous multiples were made, shows a monster of a wave rearing up and about to come crashing down on three fishing boats and their crews. One of a monumental series known as 'Thirty-six views of Mount Fuji', Hokusai's Great Wave - with the graceful snow-clad Mount Fuji on the horizon, unperturbed but wittily dwarfed by the towering strength of the wave that threatens to engulf the struggling boats - has become an iconic image of the power of nature and the relative smallness of man. One of the most famous pieces of Japanese art, this extraordinary artwork has had a huge impact worldwide and has served as a source of inspiration to artists, both past and present. This beautifully illustrated book explores the meaning behind Hokusai's Great Wave, in the context of the Mount Fuji series and Japanese art as a whole. Taking an intimate look at the Wave's artistic and historical significance and its influence on popular culture, this concise introduction explains why Hokusai's modern masterpiece had such an impact after its creation in 1830 and why it continues to fascinate, inspire and challenge today.
