The joyful, vibrant colors of spring balance the strength of snow-dappled mountains in Kazuyuki Ohtsu's landscape. Ohtsu (Japanese, b. 1935) follows the sosaku hanga (creative print) tradition, in which artists handle every step -- they paint the original pictures, carve the woodblocks, and print the images. Ohtsu's unique compositions are poetic contemplations, drawing the viewer into lovely, tranquil scenes of natural beauty and harmony. Thoughtfully conceived and engagingly intricate, Pomegranate's 500-piece jigsaw puzzles combine superb color reproduction, stunning and unusual images, and sturdy construction to delight generations of novice and veteran puzzleworkers.
