A very gifted writer that keeps kids entertained. Moby-Dick is a vibrantly colored hot air balloon that keeps growing in size as I read it. The lovely illustrations bring the story to life; my favorite is the one where they are riding their shamrock in the night sky. I enjoyed this just as much this time as I had the first time around. Pages: 413Back of the BookKabir, the human body is a mighty ocean, Its depth is difficult to fathom. Every detail imaginable from A-Z is here: where she lived, what her marriages were like, what her favorites were, and almost anything else you could want to know. It’s another one of those stories that is hard to describe without spoilers, so I’ll simply say that it manages to avoid all the clichés of the spoiled rich kid reaping the rewards of his actions.

h as decorative paper (chiyogami), votive slips (senjafuda), playing cards (karuta), and board games (sugoroku). As the market changed in the late nineteenth century, the craftsmen increasingly turned to the production of these low-value, essentially ephemeral objects. Although the prices were kept low, many were imbued with the same glorious visual sophistication that had attracted Westerners to ukiyo-e.Approaching the subject as an artist rather than a print scholar, Rebecca Salter focuses on the craftsmen and the complex visual culture within which they worked. Through information gained from interviews with some of the remaining practitioners and analysis of the objects themselves, she builds up a picture of the quiet role woodblock played in the lives of the Japanese as they moved from the isolation of the Edo period to embrace modernization in the early twentieth century.This book is a fascinating exploration of this area of cultural history and the numerous color illustrations encourage a playful investigation of the many threads of Japan’s visual culture.Rebecca Salter is a well-known British printmaker. She lived in Japan for six years and is an acknowledged authority on Japanese woodblock printing. She is the author of Japanese Woodblock Printing.
