30 Vintage Magazine Covers from Japan

1937



Here's a belated sequel to a popular August 2012 post of vintage Japanese magazine covers. Many of these again come from Bookcover Design in Japan 1910s-40s (ISBN 4-89444-426-7; Amazon link), an out-of-print treasure (Japanese-language only) which features 650 book and magazine covers. A handful in this post come from the website of Shiroko Shobu, a Japanese antiquarian dealer.

Update 12/5/2012: Bookcover Design in Japan 1910s-40s featured these covers upside-down and I repeated their mistake (assuming it was a joke by the original designers). Thanks to @Melissbian for pointing it out, and to Prof. Gennifer Weisenfeld (author of the book on MAVO) for confirming.
