Doodle Dandy

The Editor is amused. Either every Google home page in America has this doodle today, or some geek in the Doodle dept. knew when to send me a birthday card. 

Thanks Google!

On The Tōkaidō

Perhaps the Editor is feeling generous. 

Flipped Again mentioned The Fifty-Three Stations of the Tōkaidō by Ukiyo-e artist Hirosage but didn't bother to post a picture on the Toward Japonism post. 

The Tōkaidō was the main road from Shogunate-controlled Edo to the Imperial city of Kyoto.

36th station : Akasaka 1832

Architect Frank Lloyd Wright collected Hiroshige's prints. 
He described his prints as some of "the most valuable contributions ever made to the art of the world."
