Summary
"Between the years 1814 and 1878 there was published in Japan a series of woodblock-printed volumes entitled "Hokusai manga, ' or 'Hokusai's sketches from life, ' which was destined to be one of the most popular art publications ever issued anywhere in the world. With its rich tapestry of life as it was lived in the boisterous Tokyo of the day and its magical evocation of the beauties of the Japanese countryside, it was an immediate best-seller in Japan, and then, upon the West's discovery of Japanese art, went on to win the hearts of people everywhere"--Jacket flap
