Veranda

Paul Binnie “Veranda” main image
The print you may already know is a new state of Utamaro no Shunga, the very popular print previously part of my tattoo series, and also sold without tattoo as Engawa. As the tattoo version is nearing the end of the edition and the burgundy-ground non-tattoo version has been sold out for some years, I thought it might be fun to print a deep raspberry-pink background and use stronger colours, and make it part of the Azuma Nishiki Bijin Awase (A Collection of Eastern Brocade Beauties) series, like Asa ni Namida (Morning Tears), which I released recently. The new Engawa will be the fifth design in the set, and many of you will know that Cho Musubi, the first design, is now completely sold out.
