Thirty-six full color actor portraits are in Edo style accompanied by poems and a delightful double page print by Utamaro. "The large head and the half length type of actor print had been among the great innovations of the 1780s and 1790s and these two artists excelled in these striking forms of portraiture, which recalled Western prints from the time of Durer onward, focusing on the features of the person portrayed with close-up intensity."Hiller. pg. 573.
