Very nice! The Agatha Christie one is upside down though; not sure if it's meant to be that way.

Thanks,these are great.
Japanese are the best!Great findings.
"Oikawa Masamichi, Out with the Books, Into the Streets, 1969 posterrelated to the Tokyo Kid Brothers lp?"The Tokyo Kid Brothers LP is the soundtrack to a Shuji Terayama film, and I'm assuming that's what the poster is for as well, since the poster 2 above it (La Marie Vision) is a poster for a Terayama play!
Thanks Mike, I'll have to try to see that movie.The poster is definitely for the Terayama play. I like to think there was live musical accompaniment.
You're welcome! ;-) Feel free to ask any time.
BTW, "The Sanitation of Cities Starts with a Sewage System" title could be literally translated as "The Health of a City's People Starts with Sewage," which is amusingly (to me) ambiguous. ;-) (It's also written from right to left instead of left to right, which is more common in pre-war books. And it's put out by the Tokyo City Hall!)
fantastic stuff! you might take a look at this...i think you would like it... http://magicofjuju.blogspot.com/search?q=sound+cartoonat one point it was somewhat findable, but the record inclusion makes it generally PRICEY!
Thank you for posting these; they are fantastic and strangely ahead of their time.
these are amazing.
Takeo stood out for me.See: http://www.rarebook.com/takei.html
Takei is one of my favorite illustrators. A friend recently picked up some of his books from me while in Japan -- posts to come if I can figure out how to scan them without hurting them.I featured some images from that site here (having thought long and hard about who I might kill for $45,000), and did this previous post on him. Also see this cover.
Ha! I was thinking maybe I should search the site for 'Takei' but decided I'd wing it. I should know better. I look forward to the future posts anyways. And good luck with the $45K.
Japanese designs and arts has is very unique and has a very amazing story. I was very fascinated in their culture. Those prints are gorgeous. Thank you for sharing it.
