Japan: An Interpretation by Lafcadio Hearn Book Cover 1904 Wooden Poster
"Shadowings" is a book by irish-greek writer Lafcadio Hearn. Hearn (1850-1904) was born in Levkas, Greece, as the son of Greek and British parents. In 1869 he went to the United States and did various work, finally as a journalist. In 1890 he came to Japan and taught English in Japanese schools, and became a Japanese citizen under the name of Koizumi Yakuma.
The cover was designed by the Decorative Designers firm (1895–1931). This firm was unique in that it employed a number of designers, and each was responsible for certain aspects of a design—an early example of division of labor in creative work.
We turned this cover into a beautiful wooden poster through a process known as decoupage. The designed is baked onto sturdy, durable wood, guaranteed to stand out wherever you decide to place it.
*Each sign is handcrafted individually, so keep in mind that the final result may vary slightly.
