Cute Japanese postcards.
I received some very cute and pretty Japanese postcards from Yoshi. One of them is signed on the back for me, which is a bonus. At the top of this post is my favourite one, which shows Alice with the Dodo on a bridge. It makes me think somehow of "The Owl and the Pussy Cat" by Edward Lear. Lear was another Victorian nonsense poet, and although I like his verse, I far prefer Lewis Carroll's.
My second favourite card shows several Wonderland characters having a tea party. It doesn't really depict an actual scene from the book, but I like the composition and the quaintness of the characters. Here it is:
And here are all four of the postcards, laid out on my table top...
