These stunning woodblock prints, known as Ukiyo-e ("pictures of the floating world"), captured the essence of a fleeting yet vibrant lifestyle. The phrase "Ukiyo" translates to "floating world" and referred to a hedonistic philosophy of living for the moment, beautifully described as: "Living only for the moment, savoring the moon, the snow, the cherry blossoms, and the maple leaves, singing songs, drinking sake, and diverting oneself just in floating, unconcerned by the prospect of imminent poverty, buoyant and carefree, like a gourd carried along with the river current: this is what we call ukiyo." In the mid-eighteenth century, Edo (present-day Tokyo), the capital of Japan's ruling shogunate, flourished as a bustling metropolis. This economic boom empowered the chōnin class (merchants, artisans, and workers), who began to patronize a thriving world of arts and entertainment. The term "Ukiyo" came to specifically describe this new, pleasure-seeking lifestyle. The vibrant culture of Edo was populated by a cast of fascinating characters, from pleasure seekers to teahouse beauties, kabuki actors, sumo wrestlers, and even star-crossed lovers. These celebrities of the "floating world" were immortalized in the captivating colors and detailed scenes of Ukiyo-e woodblock prints.

These prints are printed on a fine quality ivory paper.
These are reproductions of old illustrations & in most cases will have the same imperfections as the original.

  • Handling: When handling art prints, always hold them by the edges to avoid leaving fingerprints or smudges on the surface. If possible, use gloves to prevent oils from your skin transferring onto the print.
  • Framing: To protect art prints from dust, moisture, and physical damage, consider framing them behind glass or acrylic.
  • Display: Avoid displaying art prints in direct sunlight or near sources of heat, as prolonged exposure can cause fading and deterioration of the colors. Choose a location away from windows or areas with fluctuating temperature and humidity levels.
  • Cleaning: If your art print gets dusty, gently dust it with a soft, dry microfiber cloth or a soft brush. Avoid using water or cleaning solutions directly on the print, as they may cause damage to the paper or ink.
  • Storage: If you need to store art prints for an extended period, store them flat in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight.
  • Avoid Folding or Rolling: Never fold or roll art prints, as this can cause creases, tears, or permanent damage to the paper and ink. Always store them flat or in a rigid, protective container designed for artwork.
  • Air Circulation: In humid environments, ensure adequate ventilation in the room where prints are displayed or stored to prevent moisture buildup. Consider using dehumidifiers or moisture-absorbing products like silica gel packets to maintain optimal conditions. Periodically inspect prints for any signs of damage or deterioration caused by humidity. Take preventive measures promptly to mitigate further harm.
