I found this wonderful collection of old school Geisha postcards on Vintage Lulu’s photo stream.
They’re beautiful, aren’t they?
If you’re fond of reading substantial stories written in lyrical prose and haven’t gotten round to Arthur Golden’s Memoirs of a Geisha yet, it’s time you did. Really. Get in your car, on your bike, into your shoesies and head on over to your closest book dealer, beg, steal borrow… I don’t care… just make a plan to get hold of that novel and READ IT! In fact I even have a copy you can borrow, if you promise to give it back to me in good condition… 🙂
The movie is a beauty too, but there is just something superbly magical about the written word that can’t be translated fully into visuals. Or maybe I’m just a wordy nerd.
