I was most fortunate to receive this fine book as a gift, authored by Akemi Matsui. Ms. Matsui is a Japanese botanical illustrator who actually grew all the rare mutant asagao and non-mutant flower forms. The book is entirely in Japanese language, however, her artwork can be appreciated by any asagao enthusiast or lover of the style of artwork typical of Edo Period Japan.
