The Sixty-Nine Stations Along the Kisokaidō XXL Book by Taschen Publishing as told by Hiroshige and Eisen, is the newest edition recounting the experience of the route through Japan, ordained in the early 1600s by the country’s then-ruler Tokugawa Ieyasu, who decreed that staging posts be installed along the length of the arduous passage between Edo (present-day Tokyo) and Kyoto. Inns, shops, and restaurants were established to provide sustenance and lodging to weary travelers. In 1835, renowned woodblock print artist Keisai Eisen was commissioned to create a series of works to chart the Kisokaidō journey, later being replaced by Utagawa Hiroshige, who completed the series of 70 prints in 1838. This new Taschen XXL edition revives the series with due scale and splendor. Sourced from the only-known set of a near-complete run of the first edition of the series, this legendary publication is reproduced in optimum quality, bound in the Japanese tradition and with uncut paper. Sixty-Nine Stations Along the Kisokaidō Book from Hiroshige and Eisen is a perfect visual delight and a major artifact from the bygone era of Imperial Japan.
