    From publisher Taschen:

    This XXL edition reprints Keisai Eisen and Utagawa Hiroshige’s legendary series The Sixty-Nine Stations along the Kisokaidō, a stunning representation of the historic route between Edo (Tokyo) and Kyoto. Sourced from one of the finest surviving first editions, this vivid tapestry of 19th-century Japan is in equal parts a major artifact of its imperial past and a masterwork of woodblock practice.

    Alias Perla is used for title type. It’s paired with Filosofia for text. See this combination in use for Taschen’s Thirty-six Views of Mount Fuji by Hokusai, and One Hundred Famous Views of Edo by Hiroshige.
