  11. Continuing, this is not Amabie, but we will not give up, Utagawa Kuniyoshi, biographies of the faithful vassals of the Seichu gishi den, ronin No. 16 Nakamura Kansuke Tadatoki 1847-1850
  12. In fact, wooden blocks allow us to rearrange values ​​— not us for engravings, but engravings for us, which allows us to constantly see them without resorting, sometimes to the difficult and not always appropriate process of searching for an album and contemplating it, which is often done quite rarely- similar to a process with packaged swords that the owner has not seen for months ...
