How do I know if I am looking at a woodblock print as opposed to a lithograph? I plan to get some of the books recommended in the Q&A and read up but any quick tips would be appreciated. I have several ukiyo-e of different sizes. From the feedback I have seen it sounds as if the ones from Uchida in Kyoto are likely authentic woodblock reprints. I also have a number of small prints that seem deisgned for tourists from the Fukui Asahido Co., Ltd in Kyoto. How do I find out if they are woodblocks or lithos? Thank you.
