The Year of the Rabbit is coming

February 3rd 2011 is the year of the Metal Rabbit.

This is image is a nengajō card, which is a card Japanese people send to each other at the beginning of the new year.

I love these sorts of specific traditional customs and the images which serve them, not that I am one to get myself organized enough to participate in a tradition like this.

But I enjoy the sparse yet evokative technique shown here in this vintage card. You can see more these images here.


  1. Superb article that gave me real tracks for my items to me. I will test starting next article. To say I even put the page in Favorites.
    Thank you
