Kuchi-e for the novel, "Utatane" (A Nap) from Bungei Kurabu magazine. A girl fell into sleep while reading a book. You can almost hear the light breeze of the summer wind and the sense of peaceful afternoon. Kuchi-e (frontispiece illustration) was made for the popular literary magazines largely aimed at the female readers in Meiji-Taisho era. They were published by newly established publishers such as Bungei Kurabu, Shunyodo and Suzando. These publishing companies; among which Chuo-koronsha, Kodansha, Shinchosha still exist; published not only literary subjects but also many different everyday subjects such as cooking, sewing and hobbies as monthly publications.
