Hokusai’s Lost Manga

Hokusai's Lost Manga is an absolute must-have for anyone interested in Hokusai, nineteenth-century Japanese printmaking, historical or contemporary manga, the history of the graphic novel or illustration. It collects three volumes of nineteenth-century drawings by Japanese master painter and printmaker, Hokusai, never published in his lifetime—or since—until now. Pictured here is the cover of Volume 1, entitled "Commerce, Trade, Sericulture, Sea Creatures, Fishing, Plants." Below the title, which is written in archaic "seal script," are the Guardian Kings, a pair of dieties whose images can often be found on either side of the entrance to Buddhist temples.
