[DESIGN] Hagino Issui, designer. ZUAN HYAKUDAI. 3 Vols. Kyoto, Unsodo, Meiji 43  An orihon in 3 volumes, (27 X 19 cm) with woodblock printed covers, all in a later fitted clasped cloth chitsu case. Unsodo outdid itself in this early design effort. Dozens of double page horizontal designs (which become large prints, the paper size being 37.5 x 27 cm) as well as circular and fan-shaped, and single page designs, too. Most in the neo-Rimpa style which Unsodo artists pioneered at the beginning of the last century - bold and lovely. A bit of browning and fading, the covers show some wear, but overall very good condition, a very nice impression of this important set. Complete. One of the very best of the Unsodo design books, which is very good, indeed.
