Ukiyo-e

Postby SuperPang » Tue Jul 19, 2011 5:45 pm

Anyone know where I can buy high quality ukiyo-e reproductions (ie printed with wood block, not a printer)?

You can still get originals for "B-class artists" for a fairly reasonable price, since they printed this stuff like crazy back in the day.

My favorite Ukiyo-e artists is Tsukioka Yoshitoshi, who did all kinds of ghosts and gory horror shit, basically what inspired the art of games like Guwange and Taromaru.
