Hokusai :   Looking back at my one and only book on Hokusai, the one that sparked the enthusiasm ( “Hokusai Drawings” by John Hillier .Phaidon ) I was intrigued to discover that “manga”,the title of one item, means “ sketches “. I love the detail therein,the folds and patterns in the material, the personal shorthand such as the patented wrinkle device on the back of his peasants elbows.
