Japanese Poster Design from the Pre-War Period



[Shogyo Bijutsuten Posuta Shusei].

Osaka, Shogyo Bijutsu Renmai 1934 (Showa 9).

[5]ll and 104 b/w plates printed on one side.

27 x 20cm publisher’s patterned boards and slipcase printed in orange and black.


The panel pages all in black and white, but still a good exhibition of modern Japanese poster designs mounted by the Commercial Art League (Shogyo Bijutsu Renmai). Designs – not printed or published posters – with artists all identified.

Copy with old Japanese stamps on title page and imprint. Binding edges and slipcase somewhat rubbed. Not such a rare book but hard to find in better condition.
