Etegami (e= "picture"; tegami= "letter/message") are simple drawings accompanied by a few apt words. They are usually done on postcards so that they can be easily mailed off to one's friends. Though etegami has few hard-and-fast rules, traditional tools and materials include writing brushes, sumi ink, blocks of water-soluble, mineral-based pigments called gansai, and washi postcards that have varying degrees of "bleed." They often depict some ordinary item from everyday life, especially items that bring a particular season to mind.

Blogger is all over the place at the moment and refusing to let me comment on your beans - which I really like! This illustration is also good and perfect for the IF theme!ReplyDelete
I love Emily Dickinson! I started reading her poems when I was in grade school. Of course I did not understand them. What a great interpretation for the IF theme.ReplyDelete

I find it interesting that the footprint seems to be of a quite modern shoe.
I love that you always seem to find these quotes that are not obvious choices, and yet are so perfect for the topic. Beautiful.ReplyDelete
