Shinozuka Uraeimon in the role of the announcer at Miyako-za by Tōshūsai Sharaku [ca. 1795]
I've been working on material for classes and a couple of new projects I'll tell you more about soon. Some of the images I'm using are from my own digital photographs. But I'm also a big fan of vintage images. Such a fan that I find more images than I can possibly use myself. So I thought I'd share some with you. Here's a new favorite from the Library of Congress -- a woodcut image of an announcer to help me announce this new thread.
