One last (I hope) question related to this project:
Self+Hirose list a signature for an artist they call 'Yoshichika' with a second character of 幾. However, neither Roberts nor Lane lists a woodblock artist of that name, and their entries for Yoshiiku (an alternative reading for this character) show this as the second character of his name.
(Just to make things wonderfully confusing, Roberts lists Yoshiiku with a different kanji for 'Yoshi' - 吉 - but instances of his signature clearly show a 芳!)
Does anyone know if an artist called Yoshichika really exists, or is this just an error in S+H?
