This book contains a selection of outstanding designs for handbills that were distributed in bustling areas of Osaka during 1910s-1950s. The diverse range of advertising  iers, including guide maps for department stores, merchandise outlines for retail shops, and

information on theaters and revues, make for an enjoyable viewing experience as documents that provide us with a glimpse of the exciting lives of regular people. Based on the undimmed freshness of the designs and their bold com-positional power, the handbills function as a storehouse of graphics and  ne designs.
