Double deck of collectable playing cards with unique art on each face. Artwork by Katsushika Hokusai. 2x55 cards.
Cover image features the iconic woodblock print, "The Great Wave Off Kanagawa" (1829-30). Katsushika Hokusai is one of the most renowned masters of the Japanese color print (Ukiyo-e); he did not produce his greatest works until 1818-1830. In his youth he had begun with portraits of women and actors; but his fame rests chiefly on his direct and imaginative perception of landscape, which was an innovation to the ukiyo-e movement. His striking and original color, a vigorous sense of simplified design, his humor and understanding combined with a fine grasp of form to produce something new in Oriental landscape and nature art.
Made in Austria, Piatnik cards are known for excellent quality. These cards feature a stiff flex and smooth texture.
