Pretty Japanese postcards – and money to a good cause
























Aren't these Japanese-style illustrated postcards beautiful? 
They're from Our Shop, the retail side of Our Workshop, a graphic design collaboration which aims to showcase fresh new creative talent. They sell well-chosen vintage things, handcrafted homewares – and stunning artwork in the form of cards, like these.
The artist behind this limited edition set of five A6 mini-prints is the illustrator, Julie LaBulle. Each postcard features a unique japanese icon, from a kokeshi doll, kite, lucky cat, daruma and a koi fish. On the back of each postcard, there is a little history about each object. The set costs £10. 
All profits from the sale of these postcards will go to The British Red Cross/Japan Tsunami Appeal.
