Kodomo no kuni -vintage magazine from Japan

Okamoto Kiichi 1928

Takei Takeo 1927

I know that I have blogged about this website before, but it's worth a second look. Kodomo no kuni was a Japanese children's magazine published from 1922 until 1949.
Kodomo no kuni and it's artists....also, Gallery
I am finishing up a design this week for 3-color letterpress prints and I am having so much fun. I am very carefully inking each line with small brushes. It reminds me a lot of vintage children's book illustrations. Tomorrow, I pick up my 4x5 transparencies of my new paintings from the new photographer, so I will finally be able to scan and show you those!
Thanks, Will for reminding me about Kodomo no kuni.
