A rare and complete Japanese erotic illustration book 春画絵本 (shunga e-hon) titled ‘The Love Story of a Spring Window’ 春窓情史 (Shunsô jôshi) containing twelve multi-coloured woodblock prints.
One of these images is Japan’s first nude photography scene. A woman lifts her red skirt and spreads her legs open atop of a chair, while covering her eyes. On the other page a naked man sits behind the cover of the camera making a photo of her.
The other images are of different intriguing sexual scenes as well, which makes this a unique and humorous collection of prints.
