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.

In May 2009 we started a web log at

http://printsofjapan.wordpress.com/

 

On April 6,  2014 we started a new post,

The Eyes Have It! No… It’s the Nose!

– A Riff on Facial Recognition

 which deals to a

great extent with the true representation

of facial appearance in Japanese

woodblock prints.

 To see what we are doing click on the picture

of the Cyrano and Roxanne below.

EVERY FEW MONTHS WE ADD MARKERS TO

INDICATE RECENT ADDITIONS OF BOTH TEXT AND/OR IMAGERY

 The photo of the black ding lidded bowl seen above is from the collection

of the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art. It is incredibly rare and special and

dates from the Song dynasty in China. It will be used as a marker for

additions to this site from January thru April 2014.

was used to mark new additions from

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.
