Japanese Decorative Papers Book of Postcards

$12.95

Published with: Glasgow Museums

Popular during the latter part of the Edo period, Japanese decorative papers known as chiyo-gami were often based on the exquisite kimono patterns of fabric designers, inspired by literature, theater, and cultural themes. Their work reflected a deep reverence for nature and an intrinsic admiration of beauty. The vibrant colors and refined compositions of chiyo-gami were put to fashionable use in handcrafting household accessories, paper dolls, origami boxes, gift wrap, and stationery. The 30 woodblock prints featured in this book of postcards present intricate designs created in the 19th century.
