After serving in the armed forces in Korea, he moved to Japan to establish an art studio. He currently resides in Tokyo with his Japanese wife.

Reviews

"I was immediately drawn to this handsome book, and my expectation of a fine journey into the floating world pictures became fulfilled. First, the color reproductions of Frederick Harris's high-quality choices give a good sense of the way woodblock prints appear in life. Second, his writing is clear, welcoming, deeply informed, and well organized. The stated aim of Frederick Harris was to appeal to a new generation of art lovers and collectors. He appears to have hit the target. This is a wonderfully worthy effort and result-a true labor of love." -Maine Antique Digest
"A unique book on Japanese ukiyo-e woodblock prints, and one that is essential reading for all collectors, cultural historians and anyone intrigued by this endlessly fascinating subject!" -Peter Grilli, President, Japan Society of Boston
"This is a fine and passionate contribution to the vast literature on the Japanese print." -Alexandra Munroe, Samsung Senior Curator of Asian Art, Guggenheim Museum
"Created by an artist and interior designer, Ukiyo-e: The Art of the Japanese Print directly reflects the sensitive eye and professional polish of its author." -Kendall H. Brown, Professor of Asian Art History, California State University, Long Beach
"Illustrated with only the choicest selections, Harris's book arranges them by subject rather than chronology or artist, breaking down what can be a very confusing area of work, and highlighting the key issues and players" -Tokyo Jinja blog
"An excellent book for someone just first getting into Japanese prints...[Goes into fuller detail than many other books do as to the block-carving and printing process itself, including brilliant photos of the chisels and baren and how they were used, and of a key block and its resulting printed image, visually demonstrating the process beautifully," -Nubui Kuduchi blog
"This book will appeal to anyone who's interested in traditional Japanese culture." -Tokyo 5 blog
