TASCHEN Pouch: Japanese Woodblock Prints
This iconic depiction of high drama on sea – a stunning Japanese woodblock print by Utagawa Kuniyoshi from 1851 – shows the rescue of the samurai Minamoto Tametomo in the wake of a raging storm. From the shipwrecked samurai to the wild, crashing waters, colossal “crocodile-shark”, and luminescent half-man, half-bird creatures (known in Japanese as tengu – mischievous supernatural beings and renowned swordsmen), each element leaps up and out towards you to provide for some serious note case envy.
Microfiber (synthetic leather) pouch with zipper and leather tag, inner zip pocket, linen lining, hand-crafted in Italy.
