In the early 20th century, print artists who used to have plenty of works in woodblock printing field had to find new sources of income. The decorative prints for small envelopes and cards, ex-libris were precious few items for which the popular demands were still high for the woodblock prints. Today, they are seldom produced in woodblock prints because of the labour intensive nature of the production. These well-made small items have attracted avid collectors ever since the early 20th century.
