The Shunga book project is evolving. As we are still trotting through piles of snow up here in the Swedish north what warms our wintery hearts is the amazing interest and energy that is generated by our female artist Shunga book project. A list of artists that started out in all humbleness is now steadily growing into something wonderful and unique. With very few exceptions each and every artist we have presented the idea to has so far said Yes!. Not only is this book project unique in the way that it chooses to explore an art genre historically dominated by male artists, but it also promises a wide variety of wonderful artists that would most likely never be featured together in any other project. We are constantly searching for further artists to add to the line up and every choice we make seem to lead us into new and exiting creative avenues.

Not only are we presented with the opportunity to work with people that we have known, respected and admired for quite some tie now, but we are also given the wonderful gift of discovering other female artists, established or emerging, and take part of their creative worlds. It is our firm belief that this book will be a great success and hopefully pave the way for other and equally strong portrayals of art created by women globally.

It is with the greatest pride we present this updated and revised list of great artists. We do so with the promise that further names will be added in the near future.
