Vintage Japanese Geisha Girls - Vintage Postcard Scrapbook
A digital album of over 100 old postcards, early prints and photos of Japanese geisha girls. Charming and fascinating portraits, many in early hand-tinted color, of these beautiful, traditional oriental hostesses in colorful kimonos.
The role of the geisha is often misunderstood. This collection includes pictures of tea ceremonies, bathing scenes, tending gardens, playing music, smoking opium.... as well as a few more risqué pictures hinting at these women's role as high-class courtesans. A downloadable compendium of haunting classic images from the late 19th and early 20th centuries, depicting a pre-industrial lifestyle that has largely disappeared in modern Japan.
A PDF-format, illustrated ebook / slideshow for Acrobat Reader. Includes optional rolling slideshow functionality and random transition effects between images.
