Midori Kami Series: Morning Glory
Every season, Midori releases new seasonal botanical letter stationery.
There is something so romantic and thoughtful about sending notes on stationery illustrated with seasonal blooms.
And if you know that person loves that particular flower, it is even an extra mile.
For years, Midori's Kami Series showcases the seasonal blooms with vibrant colors, often adorned with gold or silver silk printing on beautiful textured paper. Every season is a limited edition, and it is produced only once.
The Kami Series will not dissapoint as a gift for the gardener, paper and flower lover.
This season Misc-store selected their Morning Glory range, with the letter paper, memo pad, envelopes and postcards.
As the name suggests, most morning glory flowers unfurl into full bloom in the early morning. The flowers usually start to fade a few hours before the corolla begins to display visible curling. In early summer, morning glory markets are held in large cities in Japan, where merchants and hobbyists sell the flowers.
The image below shows a postcard of a woodblock print by Hiroshige II in 1866 showcasing the morning glory:
