    Japan's renowned ukiyo-e ('pictures of the Floating World') were originally mass produced during the Edo period (1615-1868). In this volume, curator Catherine David 'seeks to delight and inspire the viewer with the variety and artistry of these prints'. She presents almost 400 full- or double-page reproductions, divided by themes: land- and city-scapes, including iconic views by Hokusai and Hiroshige; the natural world; entertainments, notably Kabuki; beauties and erotica, scenes from literature; children; and folk tales. One chapter is sexually explicit.
