NEW - Still in shrink wrap. This book explores the timeless appeal of the geisha as an icon of formal perfection, accomplished in many areas - yet also a potent symbol of eroticism. Part one offers insights into apprenticeship disciplines, the art of wearing a kimono, makeup, preparing hair and so forth. One also learns how to perform as a hostess, dancer and musician. Part two covers less familiar ground, and presents - with the help of explicit shungo images - a collection of anonymous writings. Intimate records of passionate lovemaking and urgent longings, love letters and poems are included. This is frank and erotic writing, reflecting a largely guiltless attitude to sex, and provides a window through which we can glimpse the private, erotic world of some extraordinary women. This book is done in accordian-style folded pages, and is fully illustrated in color. There is a small black line at the bottom pages. ; 8vo - over 7¾ - 9¾" tall
