Two pick-ups – two pick-me-ups for design

Two pick-ups on Japanese historical art and design from round the web. One this week (via pinktentacle) of images from the University of California, San Francisco's wondrous Japanese woodblock collection of 19th century prints on the theme of health.

The other from last year (but which I only just noticed via Facebook) from a blog posting (from Journey Round My Skull) of images from a book of early 20th century Japanese book covers – Japanese Book Cover Design 1910-1940 (which is out of print and will cost you $570 used!)
