I found this on Ritsumeikan: they had an exhibit on the history of woodblock printing. Almost all of it was about text printing and ehon, but one featured item in the exhibit was a complete set of blocks from a Kunisada bijin print.
I thought it interesting because there are not many prints of that era for which we have not only the keyblock, but also all of the color blocks. The difficulty and elegance of the printing process is apparent.
