About the Author


Tuttle Studio draws inspiration from the modern and traditional cultures of Asia to create its language workbooks and resources, journals, stationery, gift wrapping products and origami paper. It is a division of Tuttle Publishing, a leading publisher of books on the languages, history, art and cultures of Asia. The company was founded in 1832 in Rutland, Vermont (USA) and opened a branch in Tokyo, Japan in 1948. Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) was an influential artist and printmaker. Born in Edo (modern day Tokyo), he displayed artistic talent from a young age, and at 19 formally joined the studio of ukiyo-e artist Katsukawa Shunsho. In addition to his famous woodblock prints--the most famous of which is The Great Wave off Kanagawa (1830-1832)--he also illustrated board games, drawing instruction books, paper lanterns and dioramas. Hokusai produced more than 30,000 works in his long career, and greatly influenced the impressionist painters of the nineteenth century; Monet acquired 23 of his pieces, while Degas cited Hokusai as the inspiration behind his sketches of the human form. Utagawa Hiroshige was born in Edo (now Tokyo) in 1797. Born as Tokutaro Ando into a minor samurai family, his artistic talents went largely unnoticed until his breakthrough series of prints The 53 Stations of the Tokaido (1832-1833). In the series, he captured the popular journey along the Tokaido road--the main road between Edo (modern day Tokyo) and Kyoto. He produced some 8,000 works, which can now be seen throughout the world, including at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Victoria & Albert Museum & the Tokaido Hiroshige Art Museum.
