Mail from Japan

I received a beautiful letter from Yumiko, my japanese pen friend (yes, I love snail mails!).
She sent me some postcards from the japanese artist Yayoi Kusama: I didn't know this artist before writing to Yumiko. My friend wrote me about her art and her complicated and amazing life and I really love her style.
Here are two postcards she sent me:







And this is the detail of the back:



I like all these little people, the colors and specially I love that she gave names to them!
