Fun Link Friday: New Year’s Greetings from Early 20th-Century Japan

JNStill coming out of your New Year’s haze? I know I am! Here’s a quickie Fun Link Friday– a set of turn-of-the-20th-century Japanese postcards from the collection of U.S. postcard collector Ken Reed first blogged about at Collector’s Weekly.

The aesthetic in the postcards shows some of the fantastic artistic intercourse happening between Japan and the West at the time, which popular culture usually only shows from the European side. Not all of the collection is featured on the site, but click through to see some of the amazing postcards featured! Happy Friday!
