whee antique Japanese book covers!

Mid-week link of delightfulness, via the fearsome, intrepid, and indefatigable Janet Reid:

Extraordinary Japanese Book Covers from the Early 20th Century

I love all the bright colors. Hmm, I wonder if any of my books could take on some of this style...

Happy Wednesday, folks!

AMAZING...I wish my mom still had some of her old stuff...she loves throwing things away...it drives me crazy sometimes!
Hope work is going along well!

Those are gorgeous book covers. I wish they used more art and less skin to sell a book these days. Pretty much normal to see bare midriffs and chests (with the face cut off above the chin) these days.
