Iris Small Boxed Cards by Nishimura Hodo
Nishimura Hodo designed bird and flower (a style in and of itself), and landscape prints in Japan’s twentieth century shin hanga (new prints) art movement. Published by Takemura Hideo, Hodo was relatively unknown to the Western world until the death in 2003. This print shows his attention to sensitivity and precision. He interprets the beauty of the iris, which holds a treasured place in the folklore of Japan. Image created about 1939.
This card set contains ten 3½ x 5 in. blank notecards with the single image shown, and matching envelopes in an acetate-topped box.
