Tanigami Konan (1879-1928) was a genius at the art of woodblock creation and colour gradation, and he is still celebrated as one of the finest artists of this highly specialised technique. The compilation of exquisite illustrations preserve all the original, richly vivid colours. This artistic treasury will delight anyone who appreciates the glorious beauty of Japan.
We acknowledge Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples and their continuing connection to land and as custodians of stories for millennia. We are inspired by this tradition in our work to share and preserve Queensland's memory for future generations.
