For my ongoing studies about the woodblock prints of Shiro Kasamatsu I look for images of his postcard prints and chuban prints, or generally, all prints other than oban size. According to the 1936 (English language) Watanabe catalogue, approx. 25 prints of postcard size and smaller were published. This catalogue also mentions several Fan shape prints with No Play motives, at least one of them (“Hebi”) was finished in 1936, the others were “in progress of printing” according to the catalogue.

From the publisher Toyoda Ikunosuke at least one Kasamatsu print “Geisha with Rooster” (Onagatori) is known. Who is this publisher, when and were was he active, did he publish further designs of Kasamatsu?

Any input in form of comments, ideas and images is highly appreciated.
