Illustrations of the Strange, Mysterious and Bizarre (昭和ちびっこ怪奇画報 – ぼくらの知らない世界1960s-70s)

59,00 

In this small but thick album, you will find authentic pages and illustrations from children’s magazines that were created during the Shōwa period – one of the longest in Japanese history, lasting from 1926 to 1989. They feature ghosts, demons, monsters and various creatures. They can be a little scary, but also quite funny.

The book is divided into several thematic sections – ghosts, mutants, madness, alternative worlds, dystopia and the end of the world. Each is preceded by a short introduction (in Japanese). Even if you cannot read it, just browsing the colorful pages will give you a lot of fun.

The illustrations combine Japanese aesthetics with American comics in a surprising way and will be of particular interest to designers, graphic artists and science-fiction fans. Combination of traditional Japanese yōkai with Frankenstein or zombies? Why not!
