Pink Octopus, Picture Book of Practice Sketches, Rinsai Okubo?, 15-Oz. Mug

Regular price $24.00 Sale

This 15-ounce mug is printed with a lovely octopus who originally appears as a woodblock print in the Picture Book of Practice Sketches, from Japan, done in either 1810 or 1870, possibly by an artist named Rinsai Ōkubo.

These kinds of old picture books — woodblock-printed on washi paper, then folded and bound — are called E-hons, and it’s said that Japanese manga is a synthesis of the E-hon and the comic book.

The mug is safe for use in dishwasher and microwave. The graphic is sublimation-printed for top quality. Made in USA.
