Two Post-War Typographers and Modernism

When Thu 05 Sep 1450
Where Innovation Hall
What English
Who Taro Yamamoto
This session introduces the audience to the work of two prominent post-war typographers and book designers in Japan: Etsushi Kiyohara and Helmut Schmid. Taro Yamamota carefully examines their unique interpretations, which were influenced by modernist styles imported from the West. He will also consider the historical conditions of typographic studies during the postwar era and beyond, and attempt to clarify an important aspect of twentieth-century modernism reflected in typographic works created in Japan.
