This book meticulously selects masterpieces of landscape by leading Shin-Hanga artists such as Kawase Hasui and Hiroshi Yoshida, along with Kasamatsu Shiro, Ito Shinsui, and others.

It’s a collector’s edition where one can enjoy the delicate carving and printing of woodblock prints, highly esteemed even overseas, on a large scale.

At the end of the Meiji era, the publisher Shozaburo Watanabe revived the declining skills of ukiyo-e woodblock printing and, together with artists, created “Shin hanga” that was in tune with the times.

The main artists featured include Koitsu Tsuchiya, Shotei Takahashi, Hiroshi Yoshida, Kawase Hasui, Takayuki Ito, Kasamatsu Shiro, Ito Shinsui. Foreign artists like Fritz Capelari, Charles Bartlett, and Elizabeth Keith are also included.
