Ukiyo-e Kimono Hishi Slim Lined

Ukiyo-e (pronounced uu-kee-yo-eh) or “pictures of the floating world,” is a genre of Japanese woodblock prints and paintings produced by the culture that bloomed in the urban centres of Edo (modern-day Tokyo, Osaka, and Kyoto) during the relatively peaceful Shogunate period between 1600 and 1867. The kimono print for this journal was originally a woodblock print created by an art publisher print with meticulously reproduced enlargements of small details taken from the artwork of the greatest artists of the Edo period, inspiring contemporary garment design trends to date.
