This is a collection consisting of eight visual narratives or sets of Japanese woodblock prints. They present scenes from the Sino-Japanese War as imagined by Japanese printmakers and, in the process, they denigrate the Chinese foe. The visual narratives are organised around eight topics or themes: attacking and occupying Port Arthur; the predictable pose of the hero; the compassionate hero; war at sea; army and navy heroes; Kiyochika's manga; the devil in the details; and orientalism. The narratives are introduced by brief written commentaries.
