The Art of Packaging: Japanese Booze and Cig Posters
The Japanese love thier smokes and booze. These poster don’t strike me as overly traditional and are stylistically different as the years progress becoming almost American looking in the 30’s. I’m sure there are vast studies outlining the changes in japanese pre-war society and how they reflect the commercial arts but I can’t be bothered right now – I just like ’em. Good color, nice type work, cool imagery. Have a drink, light up a cig and appreciate these fine posters.
