100 Beauties Depicting Modern and Ancient Manners and Customs
古今風俗百美人 (今古風俗百美人)
by Yukawa Shodo 0


 Yukawa Shodo is a relatively unknown late-Meiji-Era artist. He was a prolific scroll painter, but outside of Japan he is best known for publishing perhaps the largest woodblock print series ever: 古今風俗百美人 (One Hundred Beauties Depicting Modern and Ancient Manners and Customs). Here I present to you what I believe to be one of the few remaining intact copies of this breathtaking series. The set below is the only intact set that I have seen in the last two decades. Even as single sheets, examples of prints from this series are rare enough, so finding this intact set, including its original wooden storage box, was a major accomplishment.

It is a highly regrettable fact that, as is so often the case for any notable woodblock print series, most dealers (and no doubt some collectors too) take the view that 'the some of the parts is worth more than the whole', and thus separate album sets like this into individual sheets, and sell them this way for a greater profit. Call me pedantic (ok I admit it) but I view the destruction of these very rare sets for financial gain as akin to vandalism. Surely the 'worth' of such art is more than just financial? It may sound a little exaggerated but I thus felt it was, in a way, my duty to secure this set, no matter what the cost, and protect it so that it can be passed on intact to its future owner (after I am 'pushing up daisies'!).

This series consists of a total of 120 scenes stored in three traditional Japanese-style 'accordion' albums, with forty scenes per album. The three albums are stored in a hand-made wooden storage box with inscriptions for artist name, series title, and publisher name, on the removable top lid of the box. The underside of the lid includes the publication date '明治三十六年四月下旬': the last 1/3rd of April in Meiji 36 (1903). This is not necessarily the publication date of each print though; I suspect the earliest scenes were first printed in 1901, with the final scenes completed in early 1903, and as such full album sets were finally produced in April 1903.

Imaging this series was a mammoth task and a logistical nightmare (I kid you not), as damaging the series in any way was, to me, unacceptable. If you have ever had to scan a Japanese accordion album before you will know it can be like wrestling with an octopus; one wrong move and you have the equivalent of a roll of toilet paper unravelling down a flight of steps! The weakness of any Japanese accordion album is that it does not have a 'spine' as a book does, and thus the strength of the album is determined by the strength of each thin backing sheet that each pair of prints is adhered too. Any stressing of that join between two prints can easily result in the paper splitting along the join, causing damage that can never be fully repaired. Only one print can be scanned at any one time (on an A3 scanner), so the opened album has to be rotated 180 degrees every two prints. Then to scan the next two prints the opened album has to be flipped over vertically, the pages flipped, and then the album flipped over again for scanning. This flipping of the album in its opened state is a harrowing task because without careful technique it can apply great stress to the backing sheet joins. Because the largest scanner I have is A3 in size, most of the facing (unscanned) page is hanging over the edge of the scanner while the targeted page is scanned. This is fine when there are only a few pages 'hanging over the edge', but as the scanning progresses the proportion of pages 'hanging over the edge' gradually increases to the point where most of the album is weighted 'over the edge' of the scanner; once again a very precarious situation that can easily result in a fight with that octopus I mentioned above.

The above process of album flip; print scan; album rotate; print scan; album flip; page flip; has to be completed 60 times without any mishaps. This process was necessarily executed 'slowly and delicately' by myself and took over nine hours to complete. I'll spare you the details of how many hours it took to process the scans for presentation here, suffice to say I purchased this series on Christmas day and I am only now, January 2nd, close to completing its write-up.

I would not call the printing techniques used to produce this series 'lavish' (the expense would probably be prohibitive for a 120-print series), but both the carving and printing quality are very high, and are anti-polar to that of the vast majority of Meiji-era published woodblock prints. Very fine precise carving (view the individual strands of each bijin's hair) and gorgeous bokashi shading characterise this series, and there are also deluxe printing techniques used such as embossing (blind printing, unfortunately mostly invisible in the scans below) metallic inks (silver and gold), and thick white pigments. It is truly unfortunate that the beauty of this series is diminished by the scanner's inability to capture the true beauty of each print.

Without further ado I present to you Yukawa Shodo's One Hundred Beauties Depicting Modern and Ancient Manners and Customs.
