Title:

Japanese woodcut fan albums, late 19th century-early 20th century

Creator/Contributor:

Online Archive of California

Abstract:

Two fan albums featuring 28 separate Meiji/Taisho era Japanese artists, as well as eight Hiroshige reprints. Fan albums, created as marketing tools, were a compilation of a season's available designs, commissioned by some of the most eminent artists of the day. Once the season was over, these very-limited production sample books were sold. Few have survived.
