Made in Japan - these three simple words conjure playful wit, a delight in detail, formal elegance, and graphic energy. Author of the popular "Made in China", Reed Darmon has collected hundreds of images of everyday Japanese design and pop culture ephemera from the past century. Including perfume ads, art deco matchboxes, robot toys, action movie posters, Noh masks, kimono patterns, sumo cards, children's books, household product packages, and much more, the fascinating objects assembled reveal traditional Japanese artistry and techniques as applied to playfully modern design. A stylish object and graphic essay in one, "Made in Japan" is an extraordinary glimpse into the heart of Japanese popular culture.
