Abstract:
Ukiyo-e, the Japanese woodblock print tradition was one of the highpoints of classical Japanese civilization. Written by one of the foremost experts on Japanese prints, Images from the Floating World provides the definitive history of this wonderfully graceful and evocative artistic tradition. Ukiyo-e gives an incomparable record of Japanese life during the heyday of the geisha and the samurai.
