Description

A revealing and wonderfully visual graphic novel biography of Japan’s most famous artist. He’s the enigmatic creator of Japanese art’s all-time most iconic image — and far more. His intriguing life and pioneering works, details the Edo-era Japan, and how Hokusai forged an image of his country that still resonates across the world today.

Telling the story of both his eccentric (and incredibly productive) life — while simultaneously painting a fascinating picture of his wider cultural legacy, this book is ideal for both those new to Hokusai’s work and his biggest fans.

Historically accurate, with good facsimiles of his work, some iconic, some new to the reader. He was a man driven to paint and draw, which he did no matter what got in his way. Here are his rough beginnings, his ups and downs, his relationships with women and other artists, his unrelenting drive to create in in a myriad of forms, from simple paintings to murals and monolithic works.

Condition: Bumped corners.
