Ukiyo-e Search provides an incredible resource: The ability to both search for Japanese woodblock prints by simply taking a picture of an existing print AND the ability to see similar prints across multiple collections of prints.

Very nice! And the photo recognition thing seems to work pretty well; This one's on the dining room wall, and it identified it correctly.

I had quite a collection at one stage, I'd gotten interested in woodblock printing as an apprentice in the trade. They were not all that expensive back then. But the present house is mostly glass walls, there is no room, so I sold them all.
