This convenient, pocket-sized collection presents more than 200 posters ranging in style from examples reminiscent of ukiyo-e “bijin-ga,” featuring beautiful women, to colorful contemporary designs produced during the Taisho and early Showa periods, a time when visual design flourished in Japan.
Compiled from the collection of the Museum and Archives at the Kyoto Institute of Technology Design, this volume a fascinating look at the variety and scope of Japanese posters through the 20th century.
