Excellent well-illustrated work that gives a good overview of Japan's woodblock print culture, best manifested in ukiyo-e prints. This work is based on the collection of the Museum of East Asian Art in Cologne and also provides a good examination of this fine collection. The museum was founded by Adolf Fischer and his Japanese prints are at the heart of this extensive collection. Good and useful texts accompany.
