These Sharaku prints by the publisher Kyoto Hanga-In are the most authentic later edition prints of the original works I have seen, even surpassing those of the renown publisher Takamizawa. The dark thick mica background is not overly "glossy" like other editions, and the simulation of cracked mica by heavy embossing is very realistic.
