Andreas Marks avec Japan Journeys: Famous Woodblock Prints of Cultural Sites in Japan

Art historian Andreas Marks has gathered together approximately 200 Japanese woodblock prints depicting scenic spots and cultural icons that still delight visitors today, from Mount Fuji to the temples of Kyoto. He includes prints that show the roads and railways people travelled on; the pastimes they engaged in, such as blossom viewing and attending festivals; the entertainment they indulged in, such as kabuki theater; the fashions they wore, and the food they ate. Explanatory captions provide background context to the scenes depicted. This book contains many famous woodblock prints by masters such as Utagawa Hiroshige, Kitagawa Utamaro, and Utagawa Kunisada that currently hang in prestigious galleries and museums worldwide. Katsuhika Hokusai, the best-known woodblock artist of all, is well represented, with many prints from his Fifty-three Stations of the Tokaido Road series and Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji series, including his world-renowned Great Wave print. Japan Journeys will delight modern visitors to Japan and provides a valuable and fascinating resource for anyone with an interest in Japanese art, history, and traditional culture.

Review
"Opening with a short essay about how local pilgrimages explain the Japanese appetite for domestic travel, Marks organizes the prints by location, with chapters on sights in and around Tokyo, Kyoto, and other regions in Japan. Works by famous printmakers Katsushika Hokusai and the prolific Utagawa Hiroshige are well represented, including classic scenes of Mount Fuji and the ubiquitous 'Great Wave.' Lesser-known 20th-century artists depict scenes from the 1940s with a modern sensibility, such as stark images of Tokyo Station with a paper lantern in the foreground. In some cases, details of the prints are reproduced in the main part of the book, with full versions of the images included at the end. The text is sparse but provides some historical context while allowing the images to tell the story of Japan in its many moods and seasons." -- Publishers Weekly

"I have been to many of the places shown in these prints and it's fun to see them depicted in artwork that is sometimes centuries old. This book would be treasured by anyone interested in Japan, Japanese ukiyoe art, or artwork in general!" "Tokyo Five" blog"

-The print quality of the book is excellent. Colors are vibrant and the paper has a pleasant feel. I know. Talking about the feel of a book's paper in the digital age seems a little odd. I enjoy the feel of good paper between my fingers while I read. Some books have cheap feeling paper that ruins the reading experience. It feels as if the book will come apart in your hands. This is particularly disappointing in art books. Luckily, Japan Journeys doesn't have this problem.- --Japan Powered blog
