In the early 20th century, Japan's Watanabe Shozaburo determined to revive his country's interest in the ukiyo-e art form, commissioning modern versions of the centuries-old wooden block prints and initiating the shin hanga or "new prints" movement. Through essays and approximately 100 color reprints, Till chronicles the local and international popularity of shin hanga prints and features important artists including Yoshida Hiroshi, Ito Shinsui, and Ohara Shoson. All prints are drawn from the collection at the Art Gallery of Greater Victoria, British Columbia, for which Till is curator of Asian art. Annotation ©2007 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
