WFT Extra 003: Japanese Botanical Art
I collected these Japanese wood cut prints over the years. Unfortunately, I haven't found the perfect place to show them off yet and they are still sleeping in my closet:( I bought these from "Tessai-do" (sorry, no website) by Kodai-ji Temple in Kyoto Japan (http://www.kodaiji.com/e_index.html). I try to go to this teeny tiny store every time I go to Kyoto to collect botanical prints that are mostly done in early 1900's. They also have different wood cut prints other than botanical ones. If you have a chance to go to Kyoto, you should stop by to do some treasure hunting!
