Art of the Japanese Postcard
Sorry, this item is now out of stock.
From the late 19th to the early 20th century, Japan was a world centre for postcard art. Often designed by prominent artists, these postcards are astonishing for their beauty and the quality of their printing. Drawing on the Leonard A Lauder collection at Boston's Museum of Fine Arts, this handsome book presents 300 reproductions of these beautiful pieces of graphic art, with brief artist biographies and essays by leading scholars exploring their design, development and function.
