Also written ŠG‘oŽ†. An illustrated booklet published during the Edo period. These were short publications written in kana ‰¼–¼ and illustrated with pictures reporting contemporary events, in journalistic or fictional fashion, or sometimes a mixture of the two. In a broader sense, various kinds of illustrated books such as *akahon Ô–{, *aohon Â–{, *kurohon •–{, *kibyoushi ‰©•\Ž†, *goukan ‡Šª and *eiri joururibon ŠG“üò—Ú—ž–{ are included in the category of ezoushi. These books were published in great numbers during the Edo period, and the publishers, who were often also booksellers, were known as ezoushiya ŠG‘Žq‰® or jihon tonya ’n–{–≮ (wholesalers of jihon). Jihon was a term used to distinguish the popular picture books and novelettes produced in Edo from similar books published elsewhere, or from books which were more difficult to read, such as scholarly works or classics.
