Book of the Week
by Chris Steele-Perkins
The impetus for this three-year project began when Steele - Perkins was offered a gift from his Japanese wife of the famous book by nineteenth-century master printmaker Katsushika Hokusai, "36 Views of Mount Fuji". Struck by the verisimilitude of the prints as historical documents of the life of the peoples around the mountain - woodcutters, fishermen, peasants, aristocrats - as well as the beauty and spiritual aspect of the area, Steele-Perkins began to research further.
