|Notes:||Presented here is a complete set of Ando Hiroshige's "The 53 Stations of the Tokaido", originally published by Hoeido in 1834. Each woodblock print is in postcard-sized format of 14.5 x 9cm. This lovely album was published by Takamizawa Ukiyo-e Company in the 1960s. Takamizawa is well respected in the woodblock print community, and is considered to be one of the best producers of fine Ukiyo-e and shin-hanga restrike woodblock prints, due to their particularly fine craftsmanship and attention to carving and printing detail. This traditional accordion-style album of postcard prints is a superb example of their work.
