This book contains twenty-three coloured images of erotic woodblock prints from such well-known Japanese Masters as Utamaro, Hokusai, Eizan, Touokuni and Kuniyoshi.
A unique feature of this book, not found in other publications, is the literal English translations of the old Japanese text found on many of the prints.
The book also includes a background introduction to the world of Japanese erotic art and briefs about the artists, a glossary and extensive reference list. It is a must for any collector of Japanese ukiyo-e art in general and shunga erotica in particular.
Bound in black with a unique bamboo spine, this book is produced in A4 size (21 x 30 cms) with full colour digitally-mastered prints measuring 12 x 17 cms on high quality paper.
