These pieces are interpretations of the poems of the Hyakunin Isshu, a collection of one hundred poems (waka) composed between the 8th and 13th century. In the 17th century, these poems were developed into a popular poem-recognition card game which is still popular in Japan today and typically played on the New Year.
Photographs of all one hundred pieces, sixteen in color. Introduction by Mitsuya Niiyama and Marie Myerscough. Includes a biographical and artistic sketch of Mitsuya Niiyama and a list of his exhibitions and demonstrations for the years 1968-1984.
