迷人、優雅、又帶著調皮嘲諷的春畫，曾經是日本情慾的禁忌藝術。諷刺漫畫家Matthew Martin，抓住了日本春畫的本質，重新設計出24幅全彩系列畫，並且以機鋒且不太文化的藝術引文，賦予春畫新的意義。以分離式、明信片大小、摺頁的形式包裝，Modern Shunga是情人間互贈的完美禮物。
TONGUE-IN-CHEEK REDESIGN OF AGE-OLD ASIAN EROTICA
A hilarious, elegant and naughty send-up of Shunga, the once taboo art of Japanese erotica.
In a series of 24 full-color drawings, satirical cartoonist Matthew Martin, captures of the essence of Modern Shunga, and updates it with witty-and often unlikely-cultural and artistic references. Discreetly packaged in a postcard-sized fold-out accordion format, MODERN SHUNGA is perfect gift for lovers of, well, high-class dirty pictures.
The project began when Martin, a well-known Australian cartoonist and illustrator, was asked by a friend to paint the identifying icons on the mens and ladies room doors in a new, upscale Japanese restaurant. After countless and generally inappropriate attempts, Martin rekindled his great admiration for Shunga, and developed the series of drawings in this book. The works were exhibited at a distinguished Sydney gallery to rave reviews and the development of a cult following.
