Thanks, nickyskye. New online woodblock print sources are always much appreciated.

Here is a stripey chicken making friends with a mountaineer by way of thanks.

I was just at the palace of the legion of honor museum in SF for a Japanese woodblock exhibit Japanesque: The Japanese Print in the Era of Impressionism worth checking out for those in SF. The gift shop had some collections, and there are some prints on demand available.
