Japan's shunga woodblock prints were originally created to advertise the facilities of the Edo-era pleasure quarters, including tea houses, restaurants and theaters, as well as the brothels. But this new art form quickly took on a life of its own, portraying every imaginable form of sexual activity from straight heterosexual acts through sodomy, bestiality and a wide range of fetishes. Today, these images of sex, many of which are grossly caricatured with outrageously proportioned genitalia, are highly sought after by collectors of art and erotica the world over. Neo Shunga, introduced here as part of the current Japanese trend of restyling traditional fashions for the 21st century, brings together in one volume some of the most fascinating images to come out of the shunga movement. These include acts of voyeurism, masturbation, menage a trios, group sex, and even bestiality with an octopus. Contains graphic sexual imagery

Observational, experimental and analytical data show that C60, larger fullerenes, and related structures of elemental carbon exist in interstellar space, meteorites, and on Earth and are associated with meteorite in impact events and in carbon-rich environments such as coals (shungite) and bitumen. The existence of natural fullerenes is at best contested and incompletely documented; realistically it is still controversial. Their presence in astronomical environments can be experimentally constrained but observationally they remain elusive. Fullerenes formation in planetary environments is poorly understood. They survived for giga-years when the environmental conditions were exactly right but even then only a fraction of their original abundance survived. Natural fullerenes and related carbon structures are found in interstellar space, in carbonaceous meteorites associated with giant meteorite impacts (including at the Cretaceous-Tertiary boundary) as well as in soot, coal and natural bitumen. This book provides an up-to-date summary of the state of knowledge on natural fullerenes occurrences and the laboratory techniques used to determine their presence at low concentration in rock samples. It demonstrates that natural fullerenes exist and should be searched for in places not yet considered such as carbon-containing deep-seated crustal rocks. Natural Fullerenes and Related Structures of Elemental Carbon is written for professional astronomers, meteoriticists, earth and planetary scientists, biologists and chemists interested in carbon and hydrocarbon vapor condensation. It is an invaluable resource for practicing research scientists and science teachers in Earth and Planetary Science, Astronomy and Carbon Science.

Much has been written on Japanese woodblock prints, book illustrations and paintings of the Edo period known as Ukiyo-e, but often neglected in any discussion of this rich artistic tradition is the genre of erotic imagery. Many celebrated Ukiyo-e artists such as Suzuki Harunobu (1725?-70), Isoda Koryusai (1735-90), Torii Kiyonaga (1752-1815), Kitagawa Utamaro (1753-1806), Katsushika Hokusai (1760-1849), Keisai Eisen (1790-1848) and Utagawa Kunisada (1786-1865) created significant numbers of sexually explicit compositions that are today collectively referred to as shunga, or 'spring pictures'. As objects deemed injurious to public morals, shunga were banned by the Tokugawa government. Faced with the challenges of working in an illegal genre and the demand for shunga by a voracious public, shunga artists exhibited an innovativeness and creativity in their work that would be remarkable in any age.

Dieses Buch versteht sich nicht als Lobschrift auf die Homosexualität. Die Studien des Kunsthistorikers James Smalls widmen sich vielmehr der Rolle der Homosexualität in der Kunstgeschichte und der Frage nach ihrem Beitrag zur emotionalen Entwicklung der Menschheit. In einer Zeit, da Vorurteile in vielen Ländern überwunden sind, bietet diese sachkundige und unterhaltsame Analyse völlig neue Sichtweisen auf die Meisterwerke der Kunstgeschichte.

This book was published to celebrate the first major Australian exhibition of ukiyo-e art (images of the 'floating world'), held at the National Gallery in 1998. Under the headings of 'Low city', 'High city', 'Men as women', 'Embracing desire', 'Pleasure town' and 'Beauty and violence', the book traces the development of ukiyo-e style from decorative and poetic works to explicit, powerfully charged erotic ones over the period from 1600 to 1868. It features prints, paintings, screens and costumes.
