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. The two-page images are about 6 1/3 by 8 3/4 inches (16 by 22 cm), a size known as hashi-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
