Publisher's Comments

Published in conjunction with a late-2012 exhibition held at the Ruth Chandler Williamson Gallery of Scripps College and scheduled to travel to at least four venues during the next two years. This oversize volume (11.5x11.5") affords lavish display of images along with five scholarly essays and a substantial amount of appended material. The extensive Paulette and Jack Lantz Collection, a result of many decades of passionate collecting, is the source of most of the images. Marks (Clark Center for Japanese Art and Culture, Hanford, California) wrote the introductory essay in which he characterizes Genji prints as a 19th-century craze. Subsequent essays explore A Rustic Genji by a Fraudulent Murasaki, "The Twilight Beauty" in Genji prints, a Rustic Genji world, Genji-related woodblock-printed games, and erotic Genji fantasies.
