Rare Book of the Day – Yoshida Hiroshi
Yoshida Hiroshi: Print Maker
by Ben Bruce Blakeney
I have a thing for Japanese art, and especially print-making and wood-block prints, because of the precision and complexity involved. Hiroshi was a talented artist and this particular item won’t burn a hole in my pocket if I want to add it to my collection (hint hint to my family members). It has a color frontispiece, as well as one of the most beautiful color plates I’ve ever seen (shown left).
