Fun Link Friday: Portraits of samurai

I’ve been majorly guilty of neglecting our Fun Link Friday posts, being busy this last month running the medieval komonjo workshop here at Michigan, but as the summer winds down I’m starting to catch up on my blogging duties! So here’s a quickie Fun Link Friday for you all.

The Mice Times of Asia recently did a compilation post of rare portraits of Japanese warriors, which is a fun little glimpse into the history of Japan at the turn of the nineteenth century. While the little bit of text with the photos has some historical points I’d nitpick and the photos don’t seem to have credited sources, they’re still an interesting peek into some of the early portraiture of warriors you’ll see floating variously around the web. Take a break from your Friday web surfing and have a look!
