In Reply to: The New Wave: Twentieth Century Japanese Prints from the Robert O. Muller Collection. posted by Elmer on March 06, 2002 at 09:11:27:
You may want to keep your eyes open for the French version of this book. The title is: "La nouvelle vague: Estampes Japonaises de 1868 a 1939 dans la Collection Robert O. Muller". It's a bit easier to find.
The English version was published in 1993 and doesn't seem to have been associated with an exhibition. It was an effort to document and catalog parts of the Muller collection. It also contains some very informative essays.
The French version was associated with an exhibition of works from the Muller collection in Lausanne from February 11 through May 1, 1994. It is considerably smaller, but still a nice book.
Good luck on your quest.
: I was wondering if someone knew something about this book. What was approximately original price of the book? Is Bamboo publishing still in business, do they plan a reprint? Haven't been able to find them on the web at all. Has anyone come across the book recently, i tried bookfinder numerous times without success. Just wondering, it seems to be the bible of shin hanga, and unfortunately it became out of print before i started collecting in 98. thaks for any help.
