Japanese postcards from the start of the 20th century

postcardI found this collection of postcards from early 20th century Japan interesting as they track the influence of Western cultural on Japan during a period in which Japan was rapidly industrializing and building diplomatic relationships with European nations.

There are examples of art nouveau and art deco, some with a purely Western feel, and some that mix Japanese and Western styles together. MFA - Exhibition - Art of the Japanese Postcard (via boingboing)
