The demand by the public in and outside of Japan for woodblock prints by Kyoto artist Katsuyuki Nishijima seems to be unlimited. The secret of the artist's success is in our view as obvious as simple. Katsuyuki Nishijima creates woodblock prints that are in the best tradition of the spirit of the old ukiyo-e printmakers, publishers, carvers and printers - good, inexpensive prints with beautiful, appealing subjects.

After the publication of the two reference volumes (catalog raisonnée) of the complete woodblock prints by Hasui Kawase, Kit Publishers/ Hotei Publishing released a kind of shortened version with Hasui's 100 major works displayed in large-full page images.

Biography of Toyonari Yamamura
While Paul Binnie lived in Tokyo from 1993-98, he produced a series of woodblock prints of the kabuki theater. The series has been the beginning of an international career as a respected 'Japanese' printmaker.
Paul Binnie is a young artist who is well known to an international audience with his print works in Japanese style. He spent more than 5 years in Tokyo where he created among other works a series of kabuki actor prints. In late 2002 he started a new project, a series "Famous Views of Japan". And in 2003, the first design "Summer" of a series of 4 bijin prints (beautiful women) caused a little sensation among friends of Japanese prints.
The Utagawa School was the dominant line of printmaking in the nineteenth century, and it was from a commercial point of view the most successful one. Toyoharu and Toyokuni were the founding fathers. And with Kunisada and Kuniyoshi, the Utagawa school reached its commercial and social peak as a kind of pop art mass-media publishing company for the common people.
Artists of the Utagawa School
The number of artists who worked under the Utagawa name or were part of the lineage of this group of printmakers is legion, and because the so-called Utagawa School almost single-handedly dominated the field at the most productive time in the history of ukiyo-e, it is no exaggeration to claim that the majority of surviving prints from the Tokugawa Period are Utagawa-related works.
