Specifications Format: Paperback in slipcase Size: About the Author Katsushika Hokusai — was a Japanese artist, ukiyo-e painter and printmaker of the Edo period. In books of more than one volume this sheet appears only on the inside front cover of the first volume. All of these are optional; the only place where a title will always be found is on the title slip.
Bibliographically, this practice invests the title slip title with great importance. The printed area the text and image field of each page in a fukurotoji book is enclosed within a printed, single-line frame Fig. Only a very small number of books, usually those written in cursive Japanese syllabic script, omit the field frame.
There are clearly demarcated margins on all four sides of the printed area on each page. Nonetheless, the standard design unit is the double-page spread, not the single page. Text and images flow from right to left across the double-page spread, but neither image nor text bleeds into the central well or gutter. There is always a central divide. Artists of all schools proved adept at creating designs that crossed that divide.
Once the viewer has become accustomed to this convention, any sense of disjunction between the two halves of the image disappears. Very occasionally, the artist deliberately allows an element of a design—perhaps a mountain peak or a spear tip—to extend beyond the frame of the image field into the top margin. Due to the way in which fukutotoji books are made, each half of the double-page spread is printed in a separate operation from a separate block. This system does not cause particular problems with books printed in black ink only, but multicolor woodblock-printed illustrations that span the double-page spread require particular care on the part of the printer to guarantee the colors on the facing pages match.
Because each color is printed from a separate block, a thicker grade of paper that can withstand repeated printings is used for multicolor books. The thicker grade of paper, the costly color pigments, and the multiple printing of each sheet substantially increased the cost of production. To enliven and vary picture books, publishers had recourse to a cheaper alternative.
It involved employing two additional sets of blocks to add pale pink and gray tints to the line-only images printed by the key block.

The dilute pigments employed in these books did not require the thicker and more expensive paper needed for printing in multiple, saturated colors. Use of this limited palette had its origins in the closing decades of the eighteenth century. It was then taken up for the Hokusai manga and other books of images by Hokusai and his contemporaries. A more subtle variant employed the extra blocks to print in shades of gray.
Reform of the printing industry in mandated the presence of a colophon at the end of every commercially issued book Fig. In serial titles such as Hokusai manga , which were published in parts [hen] at irregular intervals, there is a colophon at the end of each volume. The colophon provides the name and address of the publisher s and distributor s of the book.
The actual year of printing is not given. The colophon also lists, as appropriate, the names of some or all of the following: author, editor, artist, and calligrapher. In cases where the cutting of the blocks required particular skill and attention, the name of the block cutter is also recorded. Even more rarely, the name of the printer is given.
The colophon does not include the book title. If a set of printing blocks was sold to another publisher, the colophon was modified. Sometimes a second date was added to the colophon to indicate the year in which the printing blocks changed hands. The latter removed them in order to hide the fact that many of the books on this list were being published from blocks cut forty years previously.
Perhaps because the firm was based in Nagoya, it was easier to ignore the requirement that all commercially issued books carry a colophon. Instead of a colophon, sheets advertising other books available from the firm were pasted on the insides of the front and back covers of these books. The advertisement on the inside of the front cover usually carried a header naming the firm.
