These handmade Japanese woodblock prints are beautiful

The left cartouche means “Fur and claw, steel and flame”, and the right cartouche literally means “star” and “fox”.

The left cartouche phonetically reads “Rin-ku”, and the right cartouche means “He swings the Commanding Sword”.

The top cartouche phonetically reads “Ma-ri-o”, and the bottom cartouche means “Beloved friends, dear rivals”.

David Bull makes woodblock prints using centuries-old traditional Japanese materials and techniques. UkiyoeHeroes is an Etsy shop showcasing his work using those techniques to illustrate video-game subjects.

The Obscuritory

The Obscuritory is a blog about obscure, and forgotten video games. From the About Page:

I’m Phil Salvador. I usually go by Shadsy online. I’m a librarian in the Washington, DC area with an interest in games, their history, and their role in culture.

This blog is my weird little hobby / obsession. I love playing and sharing strange, unknown games, and I love connecting with people who enjoy them too.
