Renowned Asian art author John Stevenson is the recognised authority on the series, and this magnificent new edition of his book is a celebration of Yoshitoshi’s crowning achievement. Published by Abbeville Press, there is a limitation of just 3,000 hand-numbered copies and we have secured 600 of the limitation exclusively for Folio customers.
