A hilarious, elegant and naughty send-up of Shunga, the once taboo art of Japanese erotica. In a series of 24 full-colour drawings, satirical cartoonist Matthew Martin, captures of the essence of Modern Shunga, and updates it with witty - and often unlikely - cultural and artistic references. Discreetly packaged in a postcard-sized fold-out accordion format, Modern Shunga is perfect gift for lovers of, well, high-class dirty pictures. Martin's Shunga works have been exhibited at a distinguished Sydney gallery to rave reviews and the development of a cult following.
