Often called "pictures of the floating world," ukiyo-e prints feature the elegant hostess-entertainers who populated the teahouses and drinking establishments of Japan's walled pleasure quarters during the end of the Edo period and into the twentieth century. Instantly recognizable by their white makeup, layered kimonos and elaborately pinned and tressed coiffure, these women were considered the epitome of beauty and poise.

Featured are the period's most accomplished artists, including Utagawa Kunisada, Suzuki Harunobu, Eishsai Choki, Torii Kiyonaga, and Katsukawa Shuncho. Lush accent colors appear on the reverse side, making them perfect for origami folding, gift-wrapping and scrapbooking applications.
