This complete collection of Hokusai’s famous views of Mount Fuji is the only high-quality reproduction of these engravings, long considered the Japanese master’s greatest works. Taken from the best engravings available and shown in splendid color, this authoritative volume is the first of its kind since 1830. Hokusai’s influence extended far beyond Japan, even to French Impressionists including Degas, Monet, and Toulouse-Lautrec. Each illustration is accopmanied by detailed notes placing the work in its cultural and historical context and exploring the symbolic themes running through Hokusai’s landscapes.

This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. At first Hokusai published thirty-six views, where a new kind of ink was employed, the Prussian blue, until then unknown in Japan. A few years later, because of its extraordinary success, he added ten new engravings called ura-Fuji, highlighted by a black outline. Because of its format, the ink employed and the theme, the series was an editorial novelty. For once the landscape is the main subject of a painting, not only the background. Mount Fuji, the sacred mountain, is represented from all his sides, close-up or far-off, under different kinds of weather and light. The original publisher, Nishimuraya Eijudo, had taken a big risk but because of the cult surrounding Mount Fuji and especially because of the amazing talent of Hokusai, the pay-off was enormous. Today, Seuil and BNF undertake this important project of gathering, presenting and reproducing in a full color beautiful book the thirty-six views of Mount Fuji, plus the second series of ten views, which constitutes a unique editorial event. In this book, an introductory text presents Hokusai fascination for nature with a focus on the development of landscape prints. A more detailed presentation of the Mt. Fuji series follows. Before each engraving comes a note listing the specifications and a description of the drawing that focuses on the symbolism of the images and places the work in its cultural and historical context.
