THE BEST NEWS OF ALL

 

There is an astounding new web site operated by John Resig.

If properly utilized it could bring on

A GOLDEN AGE IN THE STUDY OF JAPANESE WOODBLOCK PRINTS!

No lie. Many of you may already know of it, but for those of you who don't

it will rock your world. It will revolutionize this field of research for both dilettantes and scholars.

 

Here is the link. Go there, start exploring, and be amazed.

The wallpaper on this page is from a

photo taken at the Nitobe Memorial Garden

at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver,

B.C. It was shot by my good friend, Evan Black, 

in late April, 2012. He says it was the

camera, but I say it is the user.
