Notes about this magazine:
This women's magazine, "Sunflower", was published monthly by Nakahara Junichi (中原淳一) from 1947 to 1952, with a total of 67 editions being completed. It was a co-operative effort by several well-known sketch artists including Matsumoto Kutsuji (松本かつぢ), Tankai Teii (高井貞二), Suzuki Etsuro (鈴木悦郎), and Fukiya Koji (蕗谷虹児), but the main contributing artist was Junichi. He designed every cover artwork, as well as many of the internal sketches (mostly bijin-ga), fashion designs, clothing pattern designs, even hair design sketches.
Due to the popularity of Junichi here in Japan (almost as popular as Takehisa Yumeji) Himawari is highly sought-after and rarely seen in the market here.
