A Fox & Two Hares

Fox & Two Hares

I really love this Japanese ink drawing of a fox and two hares.  I wanted to make it the banner image for the blog, but it was not quite the right fit.  I stumbled upon it one day while browsing the Library of Congress Print & Photograph Collection, a great source for public domain images. The Prints & Photographs Division houses tons of Japanese woodblock prints and drawings from the 17th through 20th century.  Subjects run the gamut from ordinary landscapes to even geisha life.  Take a look!
