Woodblock pattern prints in beautiful muted and subtle colourways and tones. The official flower of Japan, the Chysanthemum is depicted in rectangular images of varying sizes - generally two or three designs to a page. 120 colour images in all, from semi-abstract designs, repeat patterns, strongly stylised art, blossoms and more, all based around images of the flower - including some calligraphy, but generally simple, strong, elegant and flowing background designs.
All images are from a rare and expensive original source - Kiku Hyakushu - 1936 - and are in full colour.
