Keywords: Culture & History

This is not really Go-related, but there are several ukiyo-e – [ext] a genre of 17th–19th century Japanese art – prints relating to Go.

Most are based on a few themes from Japanese legends, or are of kabuki actors or beautiful women playing Go.

You can read about and see some of the prints [ext] here.

In the 18th and 19th centuries especially, ukiyo-e was a common printing process in Japan, using four woodblocks (one each for yellow, black, blue, and red), to make advertising posters as well as prints for sale.
