A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. Sex and the Floating World offers and entirely new assessment of the genre of Japanese paintings and prints known as shunga. Shunga prints are unusual in that they are overtly about sex. The author takes us into the strange world of sexual fantasy in Edo-period Japan, investigating the tensions in class and gender experienced by those who made - and made use of - shunga.
