About the Author:
Tuttle Studio draws inspiration from the modern and traditional cultures of Asia to create its language workbooks and resources, journals, stationery, gift wrapping products and origami paper. It is a division of Tuttle Publishing, a leading publisher of books on the languages, history, art and cultures of Asia. The company was founded in 1832 in Rutland, Vermont (USA) and opened a branch in Tokyo, Japan in 1948.

Utagawa Kunisada (also known as Utagawa Toyokuni III) was born in 1786 in Edo (Tokyo). Utagawa school great master Toyokuni took notice of Kunisada's sketches and soon took him on as an apprentice. Though not much is known about his life, Kunisada rose to fame as the most successful, popular and prolific ukiyo-e woodblock print artist of his time, surpassing contemporaries such as Hiroshige and Hokusai.
