New Year Dingbats

These are derived from a pattern sheet provided with a set of Japanese wood-carving tools. The only thing I could read on the page: ’82 New Year.

There are 22 charming graphics, including a few nice dogs, some handsome calligraphy, and some cute cartoony stuff.

Julie tells me the blue character at left means “long life”; any help with the others?
