47 Ronin: Samurai Art by Kunisada (Ukiyo-e Master Specials)

Product Review (submitted on November 23, 2013):
47 individual portraits of the famously historical 47 Ronin appear in this book by the Ukiyo-e master, Kunisada. Paired with a retelling of their legendary story, as well as additional supplementary material by additional artists, this book is a respectable and lush experience. Considering the often taboo subject of Ukiyo-e portraiture representing individuals above the entertainment class, this book offers a thoughtful look into a genre which, to this day, still heavily influences comics and illustration.
