"This lavish chronically organized survey of his life and work is a jewel for art lovers, featuring Japanese-style binding and clamshell box. The 300 depictions of Hiroshige's beloved prints, books and paintings, along with an examination of the historic and cultural environments in which he created them, crowns the oeuvre of a true artistic titan." -Bask
