Ch: Shizhuzhai Shihuapu. Ten Bamboo Studio Manual of Painting, a late Ming period color woodblock-printed manual of painting, which was influential in Edo period painting circles. Compiled and printed by Hu Zhengyan (Jp: Ko Shouen ŒΣ³ŒΎ), a retired official turned block-cutter, the manual was intended to instruct amateurs in the techniques of master painters. The unusual title derives from Hu's studio name as well as the actual building in Nanking where he and his friends gathered to produce the album. JITCHIKUSAI SHOGAFU is divided into sections on bamboo, plum, orchid, stones, fruit, birds and animals. Each section has about 20 illustrations, with each illustration accompanied by a poetic text. Probably begun as early as 1619, the first edition was issued in 1643 with a preface of 1632. Among the many later editions, the 1715 edition included a new preface complaining of numerous pirated editions and low  quality imitations. The Shizhuzhai Jianpu (Jp: JITCHIKUSAI SENPU \’|Φⳕˆ), a manual featuring human figure subjects printed in 1644, may be one of these related works. Largely because of its superior use of multi-color printing, usually featuring three tones and varying from saturated blues and greens to light gray reproducing ink wash, JITCHIKUSAI SHOGAFU exceeded even *KAISHIEN GADEN ŠHŽq‰€‰ζ“` (Mustard Seed Garden Manual of Printing) in popularity.
