Shunga – The Art of Love in Japan by Tom and Mary Anne Evans


“In the unihibited atmosphere of the Ukiyo, erotic art and literature was openly produced and widely enjoyed; and it was here that Japanese eroticism found its truest and most perfect expression: in the famous wood-block prints known as the Ukiyo-e shunga.”

Richly illustrated and intensively researched, Shunga succeeds in rescuing Japanese erotic art from obscurity both in Japan and in the West. It is the culmination of seven years of research by two observers of the arts.
