This full-colour catalogue illustrates and describes some 300 surimono (privately published deluxe Japanese prints) belonging to the Museum of Design Zurich, which were recently placed on long-term loan to the Museum Rietberg Zurich. The collection includes many rare and previously unpublished prints.

Edited by John T. Carpenter, with contributions from eleven Edo art and literary specialists, this scholarly publication investigates surimono as a hybrid genre combining literature and art. Each print in the Lusy Collection is described in detail, including translations of all accompanying poems.

This publication is not only indispensable to specialists in ukiyo-e, but has much to offer any reader interested in traditional Japanese culture.
