Okay, thanks. I'll stick with "Toyohiro" and keep searching.
The print seems to me to be a pretty nice, deluxe printing. I did read somewhere (maybe Osakaprints.com) that some of the Osaka artists were amateurs, in that they made their living at something other than printmaking, yet still studied the art quite seriously but only created a small number of prints. Perhaps that is the case here. It seems like it would be unusual for the "amateur" to have a design published in a deluxe edition, but I guess that would be the call of the publisher if he considered the design worthy.
Thanks very much for your help, Guy
