Haha. Henry Sotheran was one of the places I was thinking of when I mentioned that the woodblock prints I had seen were quite expensive. The older ones run a couple of thousand pounds. More for actual antiques.BTW, SG, you should be aware that "the floating world" is essentially a euphemism for brothels. Journeyman's prints are probably stunning in more ways than one.

In the places I have seen them outside of Japan they were quite expensive.On the other hand, now that I think about it, I have had a good laugh at Japanese scrolls hanging in galleries going for 20 times what you can find them for from less exalted sources, so maybe I shouldn't be surprised.Pro Tip: An antique tsuru matsu scroll makes an awesome -- and...

I am 100% certain that they will rebuild La Guardia.But I am also 100% certain that it will not be on-time and not be on-budget.I am 150% certain that, while they are doing construction, people will fondly recall the days when it could be unfavorably compared to a third-world airport. Because, while they are doing construction, it will be unfavorably compared to a third-world refugee camp.
