Colorful Turn of the Century Japanese Designs

I know what you're probably wondering...turn of what century? Well these particular designs come from a magazine published in 1901 and 1902 called Shin-bijutsukai.

This magazine was a monthly publication featuring "various designs by the famous artists of to-day," and as you can see, the pages are filled with wonderful colors and trippy patterns. I don't know about you, but after looking at all of the nature elements in these designs, I feel like going for a jaunt in the park.










If you're interested in checking out the entire magazine, you can browse the pages below or visit to browse the full size version.

And for good measure, here's a few Japan-inspired palettes from the community. Cheers!
