    This is one of several books of color reproductions of Hokusai’s woodcut prints of Mt. Fuji, this depicting his original series of 36 prints. Mt. Fuji is pictured in various ways, foreground, background, as the print’s main focus, as context, etc. Due to the popularity of the prints, Hokusai added another 10 prints to this series, for a total of 46, which are all reproduced in this volume. Though Hokusai is designated as author, the excellent commentary bears crediting. Written by Ichitaro Kondo This is one of several books of color reproductions of Hokusai’s woodcut prints of Mt. Fuji, this depicting his original series of 36 prints. Mt. Fuji is pictured in various ways, foreground, background, as the print’s main focus, as context, etc. Due to the popularity of the prints, Hokusai added another 10 prints to this series, for a total of 46, which are all reproduced in this volume. Though Hokusai is designated as author, the excellent commentary bears crediting. Written by Ichitaro Kondo in Japanese, and translated to English by Charles S. Terry, the introductory chapter and commentary on each provides historical, cultural, and artistic context for the woodcuts. There is also delightful biographical information about Hokusai, for example that he changed his name many times and actually signed these prints as the artist “formerly known as Hokusai.’ Since this volume contains reproductions of earlier prints made from each woodblock, the commentators also note the undesirable effects produced in later prints as the woodblocks deteriorated and became saturated. This is of value to collectors, since popular prints were reproduced in large numbers and might be available, but in varying degrees of fineness. Included is a map of the probable location from which Hokusai viewed Mt. Fuji to create each print. A thoroughly enjoyable book!

    Even if you don't know a thing about Japanese art, you probably know Hokusai without even realizing it. Judging by the number of reproductions of "The Great Wave off Kanagawa," it might just be the most popular work of Japanese art ever, at least outside of Japan. "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji" is a famous collection of Hokusai's prints, and it's famous for good reason. The artist presents dozens of scenes featuring Japan's Mount Fuji from different angles, with different things going on in the Even if you don't know a thing about Japanese art, you probably know Hokusai without even realizing it. Judging by the number of reproductions of "The Great Wave off Kanagawa," it might just be the most popular work of Japanese art ever, at least outside of Japan. "Thirty-Six Views of Mount Fuji" is a famous collection of Hokusai's prints, and it's famous for good reason. The artist presents dozens of scenes featuring Japan's Mount Fuji from different angles, with different things going on in the foreground. Almost all of the prints are a mixture of everyday human activities taking place in natural surroundings, with Mount Fuji--eternal, watchful, in a sense uncaring--looking over it all. It's all very mesmerizing. For what it's worth, my favorite print is (probably) "Yoshida on the Tokaido," a scene inside a tea house looking out on Mount Fuji. This one's interesting for its mix of people from different castes (two women are looking out the window while their servants take a rest by the luggage). By the way . . . the title "36 Views of Mount Fuji" is somewhat misleading, since there are actually 46 (!) prints in this collection, not 36. Thank goodness this beautiful edition that caught my eye at a bookstore recently came with a separate commentary on the prints. The story is that the original edition came with 36 prints, and it was so successful that the artist's publisher asked for 10 more prints, which were added to later editions. I guess they never felt the need to change the number in the title. Regardless . . . this is a must-own for art enthusiasts and those interested in Japanese history and culture. The variety of scenes here is fascinating . . . and illuminating on several levels.

    This is the second time I've read this book. 20 years ago when we lived in japan I read it to prepare for our time there. I dusted it off this summer just before we went again for a week. Good insights. Great one liners. I would definitely recommend this for someone who had connections to japan or is traveling there.

    Lovely book of his work. Especially liked #24 although most all I really enjoy, and of course the "Great Wave." Lovely book of his work. Especially liked #24 although most all I really enjoy, and of course the "Great Wave."

    Great book - it shows the reader ho complex it can be to be a foreigner and try to fit it. Also, it gives the reader a good look at Japanese society.
