Futuristic Illustrations For Kids Of The Showa Era (昭和ちびっこ未来画報 – ぼくらの21世紀)

59,00 

The illustrations that you will find in this small but content-packed book are futuristic, surprising and often extremely funny. The album presents authentic pages and illustrations from children’s magazines that were published during the Shōwa period – one of the longest in Japanese history, lasting from 1926 to 1989. They all represent the 21st century – although one glance is enough to see how wrong the artists were.

The book is divided into several thematic sections – people’s lives, transportation, robots, computers, space and finally – our end. Each is preceded by a short introduction (in Japanese), but even without reading those, you can spend hours just admiring futuristic underwater bases, robots walking in the mountains, chips implanted in brains, or (and perhaps what thet got the closest to reality) the effects of a climate catastrophe. 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.
