I’m so delighted to publish my first very mini article at PockoTimes.com: it’s about a collection of prints, ‘100 Views of New Tokyo’, which were made by a collective of eight Japanese artists in the late 20s and early 30s. I’ve loved this collection for years but there isn’t much written specifically about it in English (when I approached the British Museum for source texts, they suggested quite a lot of books in Japanese!), so perhaps somebody more equipped will do a little more research. Anyway they are gorgeous and more people should see them.
