Cranes and Peacocks: Japanese Folding Screens Notecards

Look at these Cranes and Peacocks: Japanese Folding Screens Notecards published by Pomegranate Communications Inc of California! The box alone conveys distinction. It opens to reveal notecards that can only be called exceptional. Each like a work of art, one more exquisite than the other, celebrating the art and culture of Japan.

The screens reproduced for this set of notecards are elegantly adorned with two revered and feathered creatures—the crane and the peacock—which symbolize such desired traits as honor, longevity, good fortune, and peace. Housed in the collections of the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, the screens date from the seventeenth to the late nineteenth century.

There are twelve blank notecards with white envelopes. Card size is 4 inches wide x 9 1/4 inches high when closed, and opens to three times the width. They make the perfect gift for someone special... or even yourself! I think I'm going to frame some and put them on the wall.

Cranes and Peacocks: Japanese Folding Screens Three-Panel Panoramic Boxed Notecards are available at pomegranate.com for US$15.95. Pomegranate ships throughout Canada, the United States and world. They also have a selection of beautiful 2012 Asian Art Calendars.
