hama7, may I ask how you usually come across these wonderful resources? I mean, they're usually ephemera, so do you search stuff in Google like “ephemera thailand”, say, or do you come across the links in weblogs? I'm genuinely curious, and I wonder where the majority of the links spring from.

hama7, I'd prefer you not share with us your secrets to your wonderful links but please keep sharing the links themselves. thanks!

With so little exposed flesh even the hint of the foot can become erotic.. or spooky.
Hands in the place of feet.
Phantom feet.

On a similar theme: The Art of the Japanese Postcard, an exhibition currently running at the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. The Art Nouveau and Art Deco cards are particularly striking.

Google, and and lots of notes scribbled on paper. The secret is out.

Needless to say, this is quite marvelous. Rather than belonging to another time or place, they look like ethereal creatures from another planet altogether.
