Your week started off at full speed, didn't it?

Take a moment courtesy of the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. They've got a lovely Japanese late-Meiji (1908) postcard of Three Quiet Cats. Be sure and check out the deft invoking of paw-pads on that bottom one.

Did you know postcards became popular in Japan just after the inaugaration of a new postal system in 1900?
