Pictorial Monograph of Birds

Pictorial Monograph of Birds Numata Kashu Free CC0 Japanese Woodblock Prints

Beautiful Japanese woodblock prints of birds in their natural habitat from our own original Pictorial Monograph of Birds (1885) by Numata Kashu (1838–1901). A Japanese painter who merged the contemporary enthusiasm towards the woodblock prints. The book is well loved by naturalists and rare book enthusiasts. Most of the surviving books were reprints of a rare 1930s facsimile of Kashu's works. Download them for free under the CC0 license. They would be great as vintage posters or as classic interior decoration.
