  1. norm, as usual, with the excellent taste in books! i think my favourite art book of the year isn’t really *of this year*, but i bought it this year. i somewhat splurged and imported ‘the complete woodblock prints by yoshida hiroshi’ from japan.

    yoshida was an artist in the shin-hanga movement, that is the complete workflow and pipeline of traditional japanese woodblock prints, but done in the 20th century. there’s just something about seeing that marriage of more contemporary sensibilities and the marks of a picturemaking craft we associate more with the 16th and 17th century. yoshida especially stands out to me because of his eye for landscape and nature, and doing some notable non-japanese subject, such as a gorgeous print of el capitan.
