"This beautiful monograph, a seriously weighty tome, not only provides a comprehensive overview of Hokusai's work but also analyses his influence on Western artists. Immaculately reproduced artwork combined with research from both Western and Japanese scholars as well as intelligent commentary accompanying each of the amazing illustrations make this book worth every last penny."-Creative Review "Gives us a true idea of the great range of Hokusai's work and its enormous variety... The finest of the new publications on Hokusai."-Donald Richie, The Japan Times "As the hundreds of plates in this book attest, Hokusai's work has a breadth and versatility that might surprise those who know the artist principally for those seemingly endless depictions of Tokyo's celebrated conical volcano."-World of Interiors "Comprehensive and splendidly illustrated... It is such a visually stimulating read that this has to be the art book I would most like to find under the Christmas tree."-Frank Whitford, The Sunday Times, November "Superb reproductions make this probably the best introduction to this artist you can find."-Wall Street Journal Europe "Great care has been taken throughout to choose for reproduction the best preserved original prints that reveal Hokusai's mastery of line and colour to full advantage... A must for the library of anyone interested in Japanese art, and once again Phaidon must be praised for publishing another artist's work in such detail."-County Times
