In the West, we tend to associate Japanese prints with the ukiyo-e tradition - prints based on the aristocracy, cultural heroes, actors and the beautiful people of the time. These prints were (and are) considered to be fine art, using the highest quality of materials and immense time and skill. But behind the scenes, Japanese printmakers in the major cities were also catering for a working class culture, using intense speed and poor quality materials to create beautiful multi-coloured decorative papers, votive name cards, games, playing cards, gift envelopes, paper screens, etc. In this book, Rebecca Salter explores this tradition and also the work that is still being done today in this field. The result is a fascinating look at an exciting and beautiful art form. "The author...has combined her practical knowledge of the subject with in-depth research of a neglected topic to produce a book full of visual surprises and delightful discoveries, useful historical overviews and clear technical explanations."
