Hokusai’s Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji

Open iTunes to buy and download apps.

Description

Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849) is a world-reknown pioneer of landscape woodblock prints. He was the only Japanese artist to be listed among the 1999 Life magazine’s “One Hundred Most Important Events and People of the Past 1000 Years.” His works have been highly influential throughout the world—Impressionists such as Vincent van Gogh, the glass artist Émile Gallé, the composer Claude Debussy, and even the logo of Quiksilver, Inc. have all been inspired by his art.
This iPad e-book Thirty-six Views of Mt. Fuji presents high-quality images of forty-six prints, complete with a brief explanation for each. It will let you immerse yourself in Hokusai’s world of art, experience a bygone era that was not contaminated by modernity, and re-discover Hokusai’s genius.

Beautiful!

As a huge fan of Japanese art, it's wonderful to have a collection of prints like this easily available. The explanations for each plate are also well done. Anyone who is passionate about woodblock prints will be happy to have this on their iPad.

My only criticism would be that $5 seems a bit steep for an app made from one series of public domain images. However, considering that no other art applications for iPad even touch upon Japanese woodblock prints, this is definitely a one of a kind app for ukiyo-e fans. At a lower price or with more Hokusai works, this would easily be a 5-star app.

I would love to see expansions to this app with more of Hokusai's work, and I would gladly pay for similar apps of other Japanese artists' works.
