Saito Kiyoshi: Graphic Awakening by Rhiannon Paget / ISBN 9781785513015 / 208-page paperback, 9.5 x 11 inches, published by Scala and the Ringling Museum of Art
This catalog is the first comprehensive, scholarly publication on the Japanese print artist Saito Kiyoshi to be published in English and accompanies the first major exhibition of his work in the United States since his death. Saito was a central member of Japan's creative print (sosaku hanga) movement, and one of the best known and most popular modern Japanese artists in the United States. His work is appreciated for his refined sense of design and active use of woodgrain. The fully-illustrated book includes thematic essays, illustrations demonstrating Saito's technique, discussion of seals and signatures, chronology, and bibliography.
