Kiyoshi drew the pictures for a three-volume picture book entitled Shoshoku Gafu (i.e., Picture Album for Artisans). It included small pictures of a wide variety of objects, including flowers and birds, which could be copied by artisans who decorated consumer goods. Pictures of flowers and (or) birds included in volume one are shown in this gallery. Click on a picture to enlarge it. These pictures were only colored in shades of gray when the book was first published in 1881. More colors were added when the book was republished in 1907. Pictures from the 1907 edition are shown here.
