The ukiyo-e woodblock print of Japan has not always been in full-color. For years, the Japanese printmaker’s art followed the earliest method of the Chinese source to print from one block in black and white and to hand-color the work. In 1744, the kamimura kento – the guide mark – was in vented. This led to the development by Suzuki Harunobu – one of whose famous ukiyo-e bijin (beauties) we have on the cover – of the polychrome Japanese print made from many woodblocks. Photo by Arthur Kan.
