Japanese Pre-WW2 Posters

Working Class Posters of 1930's Japan [17 Pics]

Jun 28 2012

This unique style of posters emerged in the country of the rising sun during the early 1930's. Many design aspects look to be copied from Western and Soviet culture.

It is amazing to see how well these are done, considering that there were no tools like Photoshop and Illustrator.
