More than 200 valuable materials such as signboards, displays, street decorations, and original characters from the early Showa period are recorded at once.
This book introduces about 200 signboards, street decorations, and shop window designs from the late Taisho era to the early Showa era, when Japanese cities underwent a major transformation.
With cafes, bars, fruit parlors, and clothing stores lined up, and the urban culture flourishing, signboards and streetlight decorations were important elements that could be said to be part of the cityscape.
Please enjoy the ideas of the pioneers of the designers of the time, as well as the fascinating and diverse world of design.
