Boekenlegger # 16 (D-Pom-17-1)
With subject matter ranging from serene nature scenes to dynamic characters from Kabuki and mythology, Japanese ukiyo-e (''pictures of the floating world'') prints have held enduring appeal since the height of their popularity dyring the mid-19th century. Ukiyo-e master Utagawa Kuniyoshi is known for his superb sense of color and design, as revealed in his striking Dragon Breathing Clouds deptych, which graces his bookmark.
