Modern Japanese Posters
Posters were introduced to Japan from Europe toward the end of the Meiji period, along with printing techniques and design concepts from which their modern-day counterparts evolved. This convenient, pocket-size collection presents more than 200 posters ranging in style from examples reminiscent of ukiyo-e 'bijin-ga' and featuring beautiful women, to colourful 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, it is a fascinating look at the variety and scope of Japanese posters through the 20th century.
