This manga edition of Hagakure: Code of the Samurai finished, I’ve started to flip through Katharine Harmon’s You Are Here: Personal Geographies and Other Maps of the Imagination for bathroom reading. Today’s discovery: a reproduction of UTAGAWA Kunisada’s Rules of Dietary Life, a ukiyo-e painting that depicts the roles of the internal organs through representations of daily life in 19th century rural Japan. I’ve never seen anything quite like it before. Rather than try and describe it to you, why don’t you take a look for yourself at wikipaintings.org: http://www.wikipaintings.org/en/utagawa-kunisada/dietary-life-rules#supersized-artistPaintings-239625
On the same site, and by the same artist, is a work entitled Sexual Life Rules, which might be R-rated if your eyesight is strong enough; if your eyesight is anything like mine, however, the painting remains rather G-Rated even under close inspection with a good quality magnifying glass.
