Product Description

This book uses the woodblock prints of Japan’s Meiji era to explore a remarkable period of rapid societal, industrial, military, and cultural modernization. Three thematic essays by Barry Till trace the links between the revival of imperial rule and forces both national and international, connecting formal and aesthetic changes in fine-art prints to these events.
