The woodblock printed covers and illustrations used by The Ladies Graphic were machine-printed woodblock prints (kikai mokuhan) produced by a printing shop run by Arashida Kokusui. The process involves using hand-applied color on woodblocks along with a printing press, which made it possible to produce the prints in a large enough volume to meet the demands of the successful journal.
