Remarques & avis / Review — Here is one of our favorite series : the special issues of Taiyo, a quarterly — fine and profuse illustration, fine printing and paper, and always fascinating, varied and very "Japanese" topics. This series of 4 volumes, one of the finest in the whole collection, is dedicated to the Japanese masters of Ukiyoe: UTAMARO, HOKUSAI, HIROSHIGE and SHARAKU — great iconography, numerous previously unpublished material at the time, in well-crafted volumes: a real treat.

Voici une de nos séries préférées : la collection spéciale du Taiyo trimestriel — illustration riche et de qualité, bonne facture, sujets variés et toujours passionnants, très "japonais". Cette série de quatre volumes, l'une des meilleure dans toute la collection, est consacrée aux maîtres japonais de l'Ukiyoe : UTAMARO, HOKUSAI, HIROSHIGE et SHARAKU — superbe iconographie, nombreuses pièces inédites alors, en volumes très bien finis : un réel plaisir.
