"The scenes and stories of sensual pleasure found in this book are told by the masters of Japanese erotic art. Idealized, imaginative and sometimes fantastical they originally depicted sexual scandals that took place in the imperial courts, but over time also illustrated encounters between ordinary people. The book showcases the finest selection of Ukiyo-e Shunga (erotic art from the Floating World)".
