This set of three woodblock printed albums is a tour de force of graphic design by Kamisaka Sekka, the artist considered the last major exponent of the Rinpa style of painting and design associated with the artists Tawaraya Sotatsu (died about 1640) and Ogata Korin (1658-1716). From right to left are a traveler in the swirling snow, a design of poem slips (tanzaku) with Otsu-e (a type of souvenir painting produced in the town of Otsu) motifs, and a fan shape containing the likenesses of a group known as the Six Immortal Poets.
