    I love it!! That's all I can say :-D If you like Japan and the paintings you have to read the book. The paintings of Hiroshige are very beautiful and the descriptions to each of them are very comprehensible. I think it is a must have for everyone who wants to travel to Japan to discover the old road "Tokaido". I love it!!

    Cool! I liked the prints, particularly the winter scenes. The kindle edition included some modern photographs of some of the locations depicted in the 53 stations. I would have liked some captions on those stating where they were and what they depicted 9some bore very little resemblance to the scenes in the prints), but otherwise it was a lovely book.

    Une parfaite introduction à l'art de Hiroshige et un beau petit ouvrage (donc à un prix abordable). Attention: ce livre recense les vues des 53 stations du Tôkaidô (la route conduisant de Tokyo à Kyoto par le sud). Il est précédé d'un court texte explicatif et de mini-descriptions de chacune des estampes. Si vous cherchez un livre d'art avec des explications très fournies, passez votre chemin. Mais comme je le disais, cet ouvrage constitue une présentation idéale de l'oeuvre de Hiroshige.

Les reproductions sont de qualité, même si rien ne vaut le fait de les voir en vrai, par exemple lors de l'exposition consacrée que la Pinacothèque de Paris consacre à Hiroshige en ce moment.

    Delizioso libriccino rilegato a soffietto con una copertina bruno-dorata che è una gioia per gli occhi. Prezzo abbordabile nonostante sia importato (intorno ai 25 euro da hoepli.) L'opuscolo di spiegazione allegato non è granché, gli editori francesi hanno cura di specificarti di aver scelto delle stampe accompagnate da poesie ma hanno mancato di inserire una traduzione delle stesse, della serie o sai bene il giapponese o ti puoi anche arrangiare.
