Rarely seen book on the poster work of the legendary Japanese graphic artist Tadanori Yokoo. Printed and published by Mainichi Shinbun in Japan, this volume carries very little text and is made up almost 100% of beautiful full page reproductions of Yokoo's major poster works from the years 1971-1974, in which his iconic photo-montage and print-making had a distinct psychedelic, erotic and esoteric spirit. Softcover (French-fold cover), 80 pages (full colour ill. throughout), 21 x 28.5 cm; 1st Edition, Out of print title / Used. Published by Mainichi Shinbun / Japan. All text is in Japanese. Tadanori Yokoo (?? ??), born in Nishiwaki, Hyogo Prefecture, Japan, in 1936, is one of Japan's most successful and internationally recognized graphic designers and artists. He began his career as a stage designer for avant garde theatre in Tokyo. His early work shows the influence of the New York based Push Pin Studio (Milton Glaser and Seymour Chwast in particular) but Yokoo himself cites filmmaker Akira Kurosawa and writer Yukio Mishima as two of his most formative influences.
