These beautiful and evocative images are taken from vintage postcards so although printed to the same high standard cannot be Limited Editions which is reflected in the pricing structure.

They were sent by people on trips to Japan for pleasure or business, others were part of collections which have since been dispersed. They show photos of Japan between around 1900 to the early 1930s and were originally black and white images which have been hand-coloured.

As photographers ourselves, we have been very careful whilst retouching these images to keep in mind what the original photographers would like to see if they were alive today. We hope they would approve.
