Sweet and nostalgic patterns from Japan

Modern Patterns of Japan Sweet and Nostalgic is a lovely collection of vintage patterns from the 1950's -1970's sourced from printed chiyogami papers, kimonos and old clothing by the artist Yonagadou . Yonagadou incorporates these nostalgic and whimsical patterns into her range of stationery and wrapping papers, sold under her label Modern Japan Reproduction Paper .
I love the pages of sweet birds - especially this first one!

Modern Patterns of Japan by Yonagadou is published by Pie Books , 2010.
