"Wow, thank you for posting this! I'm really enjoying it! I think this is a great complement to 'The City Dark' (http://www.pbs.org/pov...). I appreciated the interviews and seeing the direct impact this was having. Thank you for citing the figures on the amount of energy waste that was going into keeping the surplus lights on. (Also enjoyed the 'Rite of Spring' soundtrack!) Best of luck with your film!" - John Resig

jeresig on "Misty Moonlight at Matsue in Izumo Province, from the series Souvenirs of Travel III" by Kawase Hasui, 1924 [1025 x 1500] - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Thank you for posting this print! For others that are interested, this is a Japanese woodblock print created during a resurgence of interest in traditional woodblock printing during the 1920s and 30s (called "shin hanga"). An interesting thing to note about this print, and many prints from this time period, are the many different ways in which the atmosphere of the print can change, simply by modifying the colors used during printing (no woodblocks were created or modified during printing): http://ukiyo-e.org/upload... If you're interested in this specific artist you can find thousands of additional prints on a site that I've created, here: http://ukiyo-e.org/artist... Please let me know if you have any questions, I'd be happy to help answer them!" - John Resig

jeresig on Hiroshige Andō - Suruga satta no kaijō [Sea at Satta in Suruga Province] (1858) - http://www.reddit.com/r...
"Thank you for posting this! If others are seeing how this print appears in other collections you can find some additional copies here: http://ukiyo-e.org/upload... This copy at the Museum of Fine Arts is particularly good: http://data.ukiyo-e.org/mfa... A fun fact: Look at the mountain (Mount Fuji) and the water beneath it. See the light swirls? Those come from the tool that's used to make the print impression: a baren. It's a round coiled cord placed a disk. The paper is put onto the woodblock and you use the baren to rub the paper into the woodblock (and thus, the ink on the woodblock).

"This is absolutely Ukiyo-e -- Shin hanga is much later, not until the 1900s at the earliest. Most are from the 1920-30s, or so." - John Resig
