It is a very large, beautifully bound coffee table book with high quality paper and reproduction. All of the prints include descriptions and historical insights. This is definitely worth the price. The only thing I would have liked different: the very long foreword is at the beginning and runs over 100 pages. I would have rather the prints begin the book and have the long essay as an afterword. Other than that, the print is exactly what I wanted.
This is a book on wood block prints and it has done an excellent job in bringing the works of Yoshitoshi. If you are seriously interested in Japanese Woodblock printing this is a great book, and when you hold it in your hands, you will see that the price is totally justified. I read a review that says, you would want to buy two, one to keep, and one to cut the prints and hang on your wall. I understand the sentiment, but I do not think anyone would want to cut anything out of this gorgeous book.
Great looking reprint. Well made, feels worth the loot you drop to get it.
