Introduction to "Masterworks" section of 140 posters
Within a span of 50 years, I have created more than 1300 large posters. These were mainly targeted towards Japanese corporations, exhibitions and the entertainment and merchandising industries. Most were designed with the Japanese lifestyle and culture in mind.
For this book I have selected posters I feel best represent my work and yet can be enjoyed by people all over the world who have different lifestyles, cultures and customs.
Ignoring the chronological sequence in which they were created, I have arranged the posters on the pages in the way I felt would be most interesting to the reader.
In addition, I have presented a sequence of images following page 16 that show some of the preliminary design stages to help the reader appreciate the creative process that lies behind my work.
Finally, there are a few images of pieces I created for display outdoors. These represent another dimension of my work and allow you to see how I deal with three-dimensional space.
