The best letter book for retro design lovers! A collection of 100 modern and stylish patterns!
From the Meiji period (1868-1912) to the early Showa period (1926-1989), when Western culture began to enter Japan, many modern designs were used as illustrations for magazines and books. Many illustration reference books were also published showcasing design collections of Art Nouveau style plants, decorative frames, birds and fruit. This book contains 100 of the best designs from this period, carefully selected and made into appealing retro patterns. It also includes ideas for paper crafts such as pouches, chopstick holders and other Japanese decorations and wrapping. Why not enjoy writing letters or making crafts with these unique papers featuring hand-drawn retro patterns and color schemes that you won't find anywhere else?
