Meg Taber, Membership Coordinator Speaking on Label Designs for Japanese Tea
My name is Meg Taber, Membership Coordinator at the Memorial Art Gallery. I chose a few of these designs for Japanese tea labels because I found them to be beautiful, whimsical and strange. What first drew me to these tea labels was the label with the “Cat fully clad in Kimono Preparing Tofu” as mice run around on the other panel. As an animal lover and tofu enthusiast I could not resist its charm. What this has to do with tea, I have no idea, but it would certainly intrigue me enough to buy whatever product it was selling.
