Space Teriyaki 5

Visions of space and the future in Japan in the 70s and 80s.


What you are seeing here is a selection of scans from my ever-growing collection of books and catalogs on Japanese illustration and design. I'm putting the series on hiatus to focus on a new one highlighting dream imagery from this time (of course, most of these could fall in that category too).
