This is a fantastic original woodblock print picture book full of Keinen's talented and celebrated bird and flower artwork. What makes his work even more awe-inspiring is that each picture is an actual woodblock print; not merely a painting. There's a reason why he's considered one of the best bird and flower artists to ever come out of Japan!
(Note: in the photos provided, there are some faint horizontal lines that appear near the bottom of each picture(s). This is due to the old dinosaur scanner I had to use because of the size of this book. Rest assured, they are simply 'lines of light' from the old scanner, and do not appear anywhere in the book itself).
