Intrigue, beauty, and erotic desires captivate the colorist who embarks on an adult artistic journey through the sensual life of the traditional geisha. The stunning, contemporary artwork from Henfusa Ittcho and Haru Kawa depicts the geisha’s role in Japan and her hobbies, friendships, and romantic encounters.
Though Japanese Doll has been lost for nearly a century, Lafayette’s delicate recreation of the artwork allows modern artists (and coloring enthusiasts) a way to experience a bit of the magic of ancient Japan.
