THE 53 STATIONS OF THE TOKAIDO + ONE HUNDRED ASPECTS OF THE MOON
In this work we present The Fifty-three Seasons of Tokaido and One Hundred Aspects of the Moon.
The first consists of a series of engravings created by Utagawa Hiroshige after making his first trip along the Tokaido Road in 1832. This road was the most important road in Japan as it connected the shogun’s capital, Edo, with the imperial capital, Kyoto.
The second work, by Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, has the moon as the protagonist, since it is the moon that illuminates each and every one of the engravings of this brilliant 19th century artist who brings us closer to Japanese folklore and its extraordinary world of traditions, love and war. Two centuries later, the Japanese artist Mirai Kobayashi, a native of Madrid by adoption, comments and interprets the work of his ancestors.
The book has two covers, one dedicated to the 53 Seasons and the other to The 100 Aspects of the Moon. You decide where to start reading it.A luxury that will allow the reader to travel under the moon and travel the road to Tokaido by the hand of a renowned painter, illustrator and calligrapher, and analyze the work with the vision of an artist who seeks the essence of art in water and thinks with the brush.This edition also includes, with a die-cut, four fabulous plates, two by each artist.
THIRTY-SIX VIEWS OF MOUNT FUJI
In this limited edition we present the 36 views of Mount Fuji created by Utagawa Hiroshige and Hokusai, the most renowned ukiyo-e draftsmen, engravers and painters.
The book has two covers, one dedicated to Hirosigue and the other to Hokusai. You decide where to start reading itBoth are the most important interpreters of Japanese illustration, with a subtle control of chromaticism – with their mastery of green and blue – and their sense of foreground, which would later be imitated by photography and cinema.
This book is a great novelty because it shows the conflicting and at the same time interpenetrating visions of Mount Fuji, the highest peak on the island of Honshu, which has been considered sacred since ancient times and women were forbidden to reach the summit until the Meiji era (end of the 19th century).
The two best authors of ukiyo-e in an unpublished and limited edition work.
