This collection combines traditional Japanese Ukiyo-e art styles with modern ones, giving it a fun and unique twist.

Based on traditional Ukiyo-e style paintings. The Japanese poem is taken from the oldest collection of Japanese poetry book titled Man'yōshū and is written by Ishikawa no Iratsume.

Poem One:
Japanese:  吾を待つと 君が濡れけむ あしひきの やまのしづくにならましものを

English translation: I would like to be the mountain rain which made you wet whilst waiting for me. 

Due to the age of the poem, it is hard to produce a literal translation in English. It is about two lovers, the man is waiting on a hill in the rain whilst the woman wishes she were the rain falling on him so they could be together.

  • Size: A4
