Utamaro Books Interactive

We would like to introduce you to one of the interesting digital projects of the Fitzwilliam Museum (Cambridge) featuring three titles of picture books (ehon) by Kitagawa Utamaro. The Utamaro Books Interactive allows users to virtually turn the pages of the books, and read translations of the texts with the mouse roll-over function. Enjoy going through the pages of The Insect Book (Ehon Mushi Erami ; 絵本虫撰), The Shell Book (Shiohi no Tsuto ; 潮干のつと), and The Bird Book (Momo Chidori; 百千鳥).
