The cover of this lovely journal is adorned with the reproduction of a 20th-century Japanese woodblock print. The original image, entitled Tit on Paulownia, was created in 1934 by artist Ohara Koson (Shoson). A woodland bird perches on the stem of the paulownia, known in Japan as the ''princess tree,'' amid red leaves and blue berries.
