Originally published in 1962 in a limited edition of 475 copies, The Modern Japanese Print—An Appreciation soon became a collector's item. Includedin the folio-sized volume were ten original woodblock prints by contemporary Japanese artists. The idea for this unique presentation had originated with James Michener who hoped to assist this little known group of dedicated menachieve wider recognition. Well known for his best selling novels, Mr. Michener is no less at h o m e in the field of art criticism and has personallyassembled one of the finest collections of Japanese prints made in recent decades. The original works of art in The Modern Japanese Print were selected in a contest judged by art experts in the United States and Japan who soughtto find the best examples representing " t h e richness and p o w e r of the modern Japanese print m o v e m e n t . " T h r e e years of preparation preceded the book's publication and the result was a w o r k of literary and artistic importance. To give a much wider audience the opportunity to observe and study these outstanding prints, The Modern Japanese Print is now availablein a popularly priced version. The ten original woodblock prints are reproduced in full color; M r . Michener's text is retained completely. Aside from the artists whose works are shown, the author discusses many others who are contributing to the continuing development of this art form. James Michener's perceptive, informative introduction to modern Japanese printmaking, with commentary on each of the works, including full technical details, is written with critical acumen and notable prose.
