That's an interesting piece of our history there, thanks for the link.

For more japanese woodblock prints from the 17th - 19th century, check out John Fiorillo's site. Hmmm, pictures of the floating world.

I saw a bunch of 17th century Japanese prints at the MFA in Boston about two years ago. It was a spectacular show... Maybe the prints were actually printed in more recent times from old plates, or maybe my memory is just faulty, but the colors in that show were a lot brighter than what we're seeing here. Could also have to do with preservation. nem tudom.
