Amsterdam : Hotei, c2005. This profusely illustrated volume presents groundbreaking scholarship on the Ukiyo-e artist Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) and his immediate artistic and literary circles. Achieving worldwide renown for his dramatic landscape print series, such as the Thirty-Six Views of Mt Fuji, Hokusai also excelled in book illustrations, erotica and privately commissioned woodcuts called surimono. Aspects of the artist's innovative and novel approach to the graphic arts are discussed in the first half of this volume.
Hokusai paid close attention to the production of his work in books
Hokusai paid close attention to the production of his work in books. Hokusai writes to the book’s publisher that the blockcutter Egawa Tomekichi, with whom Hokusai had previously worked and whom he respected, had strayed from Hokusai’s style in the cutting of certain heads. In 1811, at the age of 51, Hokusai changed his name to Taito and entered the period in which he created the Hokusai Manga and various etehon, or art manuals. These etehon, beginning in 1812 with Quick Lessons in Simplified Drawing, served as a convenient way to make money and attract more students.
