Cross-dressers in Ukiyo-e.

Regular price £27.00

'Cross-dressers in Ukiyo-e' looks at the festivals, performances, Kabuki plays and other instances where gender roles are switched, the woman playing the man, and the man playing the woman. 

Through a variety of beautiful Ukiyo-e woodblock prints from the Edo period we get insight into the role that role reversal and cross-dressing played in the Japanese society of the time.

A wonderfully printed softbound book whose matte stock paper does real justice to the illustrations reproduced within.
