Utagawa Kuniyoshi produced thousands of prints and designs during his lifetime, but is perhaps best-known for his musha-e (warrior prints'), with which he came to prominence in 1830. Outlaw Swords of Death collects over 160 of Kuniyoshi's most striking and innovative early musha-e designs, presented in large format and full-colour throughout. The collection includes all 74 prints in the series 108 Heroes, and also a wide selection of the most dynamic images from his follow-up series 800 Heroes (1830-36). The designs range in date from 1825 to 1845.'
