Retro Handbills From The Taisho And Showa Era | Seigensha
Another beautiful collection of Japanese ephemera from the good folks at Seigensha. This time, the collection focuses on illustrated handbills that were produced in Osaka across the 20th Century. These commercial objects cover a wide range of subject matter, including products, services, destinations and entertainments.
The handbills within are all defined by old kanji lettering, bright colours, and eye-catching illustrations, and offer a fascinating insight into trends in Japan’s commercial design throughout the century.
