Reviews - What do customers think about The Ear Catches the Eye: Music in Japanese Prints?

A little gem of a publication!!  Apr 16, 2008
Another wonderful publication from Hotei Publication. Has informative introductory essays on the history of Japanese musical instruments. But the meat of the book is the beautifully reproduced woodblock prints, all displaying one form of musical instrument or another. A little bonus - of the 150 plates of woodblock prints reproduced here, 45 of them are of the genre of "surimono" (privately published prints. Much higher quality than the mass-produced prints that most of us are familiar with). It's almost like having two books - one for regular prints and one for surimono. Get it soon before it's gone. Some of the recent Hotei publications seem to go off the market fairly quickly. One complaint - wish they had the hardcover edition of the book. Other than that, this is a great book for students of both Japanese prints and Japanese musical instruments.
