This message card was hand-printed by skilled craftspeople using woodblocks. This method of printing was adopted in Japan during the Edo-period (1603-1868 CE) for printing books and creating decorations, produced on both paper and canvas. To create these cards, reliefs of an original design are carved by hand into wooden blocks, with one block for each colour involved.
This card features a night lit by the full moon, illuminating the pages of a book from which a rabbit is jumping. Rabbits and the full moon are often associated with each other as – according to Japanese folklore – there are rabbits living on the moon making mochi, rice cakes.

Size: approx. L9.5 cm x W6 cm
