Katherine Jowett 2 Boxes Blank Note Cards, 24 Total Cards Shin-hanga Envelopes For Sale
Offered by Over The Blue Horizon are two boxed sets of note cards featuring shin-hanga artist KATHERINE JOWETT. Katherine Jowett was born in Devon, England in 1890 into a religious family. In her early twenties, she followed a Methodist missionary with whom she was in love to China but instead, married a prominent member of the British community. The majority of the approximately 20 prints she produced depict temples and other famous landmarks in the Peking area, and she carved and printed her designs using linoleum blocks and oil-based inks. She did not use a 'key-block' in her printings, but rather layered the colors as in a painting, giving her works a hazy, impressionistic feel. She was interned by the Japanese during World War II in a prisoner-of-war camp, returned to England after the war, and died 20 years later. Printed by a small, now out-of-business printer in Hawaii in 2006, each box of cards offers 12 cards of six different prints (2 of each). The cards are: Early Morning Inside Hata Men Gate; Camel Train Outside Peking; Temple of Heaven, Peking; Gateway, Peking; Chinese Street; and Lanterns in the Wind. The cards are each 4.25 x 5.5 inches in size and are blank (no greeting printed on inside), and each box includes 12 envelopes. Do the math and you receive 24 cards and 24 envelopes. The boxes show just a bit of wear from probably storage but they are technically still new. See the accompanying scans for a better look at just how nice these two sets of Katherine Jowett cards are!
