: I am just starting to read about and enjoy Japanese
: woodprints and would like to learn about especially helpful
: books on the subject with excellent illustrations. Thank
: you so much for a superb website - it is really terrific
: and clearly a labor of love.

I can advise you to begin with a book that reads easy, explaines the most important toppics and shows a nice collection of major works of ukiyo-e woodblock prints: "The Art of Japanese Prints" by Richard Illing. He often visites this site himself and perhaps he might give you some hints about how to obtain it (and whether it's still beeing published).

Of cource there are better, more recent and more illustrated books about Japanese Prints but
this is a nice start. And: keep searching on the net. Some of the sites have great overviews about all kinds of subjects concerning ukiyo-e.

Yours truly, Theo de Kreijger
