This book is in color and half the length of the other Mitani book I introduce.

17-19c Japan boasted what was probably the world’s most dynamic street culture, which is to say vendors and beggars. The advertizing could be so creative (costumes as well as calls) that some individual vendors gained national reputations. The artist-author not only describes the type of vendor his redone old prints show but spices it up with a fine selection of senryu and zappai. I knew about the eye-mask-wearing tooth-paste vendor from literature before reading Mitani’s book, but not the hot chili vendor carrying his goods in a huge chili-pepper shaped red bag!
