Showa Modern: Signs and Store Designs, 1920s-30s

Regular price £24.75

Subtitled 'Window Fronts, Shop Interiors, and Displays from City Streets', this new title from excellent Tokyo-based publisher Seigensha captures the streets of Japan at a time of enormous upheaval. In a time that became known as the age of Showa Modern, the influence of the West, especially in terms of advertising and fashion, became ever more pervasive. 


he designs featured here are a century old, however, many seem new even now - proof that they have lost nothing of their striking presence. They reflect the pursuit of the Japanese design industry to create a peerless, colourful world of inspiring commercial imagery.
