Hana goyomi

(Calendar of Flowers, 華古与見)

1835

 

“Calendar of Flowers” was published in book form with most of the color prints extending across two pages.  All the color images are reproduced below.  Each page is approximately 8¾ by 61/3 inches or 22 by 16 cm, a size known as hanshi-bon.

This is an abuna-e (あぶな絵), a picture that is suggestive, but not explicitly erotic.  The first print in a shunga series is often an abuna-e.

This is also an abuna-e (あぶな絵).  It is the first print of the second volume of Calendar of Flowers.

This image also appears in Gyokueki chiwa hana ikada
