Because of their ephemeral nature, Edo period woodblock prints intended to be cut out are relatively uncommon today. I’ve seen some of actors and costumes – essentially no different from the paper dolls you might have played with as a child – as well as ones involving faces (kumadori makeup).

Much thanks for sharing this. Click through for the whole post.
