Comments - Handsome diptych composed of covers for two volumes of the book "Hokusetsu Bidan Jidai Kagami." At right, a beauty hides her mouth behind her sleeve as she looks down. Behind her, a young man looks furtively over his shoulder as he passes her a letter. A border of clouds separates the figure from a view of a mansion built out over the water surrounded by a garden with blossoming cherry trees and stone lanterns. An attractive design in an interesting format.
