Abstract:

"Essays by Kendall H. Brown, Leonard A. Lauder, Anne Nishimura Morse, and J. Thomas Rimer, with a note on printing techniques by Joan Wright." "From the late 19th to the early 20th century, Japan was a vital world center for postcard art. More than just casual mail pieces, these postcards were often designed by prominent artists and had a visual impact that belied their modest format. Remarkably beautiful examples of graphic design in their own right, they also recorded the shifting definitions of "East" and "West" at a time when such European currents as Art Nouveau began to show up in Japanese visual productions." "Art of the Japanese Postcard presents 300 full-color examples of these cards, culled from the vast Leonard A. Lauder Collection."--BOOK JACKET.
