Japanese Postcards

Asia rising : Japanese postcards is an online exhibition of postcards from the Leonard A. Lauder Collection of Japanese Postcards at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston.
A long essay by American historian John W. Dower examines the Russo-Japanese war and its representation in postcards, images of which are embedded in the text. The Visual Narratives section presents much larger images of these postcards in thematic extracts from the essay, allowing details to be examined.
