Thirty panel leporello card book showing a collection of found postcards depicting the ‘Married’ Rocks at Futami-no-ura, a famous Shinto shrine in Mie Prefecture, Japan. According to Shinto, the rocks represent the union of two deities in marriage. The two are joined by a shimenawa, a heavy rope of rice straw, that is ceremonially renewed three times per year. At dawn during the summer months it is possible to see the sun rising between the two rocks. The earliest known image of the shrine dates from the 14th century.

The publication replicates the form of a souvenir postcard-book with perforated panels that may be torn and used as postcards to send.
