Were you able to find a copy for under $150? I've been looking around for one, but the prices tend to be quite steep.
A copy of the Roku book? I bought it last year, and paid in the $50-$75 range I think.
Sorry, yes, the Roku book. He and Miyazawa is something of a match made in heaven.
Re: Shigehara's poster for an American book, the title, as represented by the big characters (katakana and hiragana), seems to be Dakota yo Saraba, which (I think) means Dakota Farewell, or Goodbye to Dakota, or something similar. I don't know if that helps at all, as I've never heard of a book with a title like that, but FWIW, as they say ...
I am always in fantastic Awe about your posts, wondering where you find it?
wow, some real beauties here, thank you!
I Really like the Yasuo Shigehara illustration. Good stuff as usually!
The book title you're trying to identify means "farewell Dakota". I will investigate for more.
Nice, thank Gould!
Delightful stuff. I am especially intrigued by Shinohara Katsuyuki, who I never saw before. And Sandi is such an amazing source of delectable images!
Thanx, thanx, thanx 4 sharing:I'm a Japanese culture addict and I reallyappreciated this post.
This post makes me swoon! Thank you so much for compiling them... all i can say is wow.
Amazing. What do you use to scan your books without hurting them?
Sometimes I just hold my breath! One trick is to never use the scanner cover, but instead gently press on the book (the area you are scanning) with another book.There are also plenty of books I just won't scan because I would hurt them.
Ah, so you just use a regular scanner then...it seems like I can never get the page to lie flat, let alone scan the whole area I want. Thanks for answering!
I love your collections. Iam so inspired!
I am fascinated by Japanese graphical design. GREAT SELECTION!Here is an example of a 200 year old Japanese design ......which I found on annpther blogg.Katsushika Hokkei ca. 1820
AMAZING roundup! I wish I could find prints of some of these gems.
