Book recommendation: Japanese Graphics Now

While visiting the Museum of Fine Arts on Saturday, I picked up a Taschen book called Japanese Graphics Now. cover of bookA big, handsome coffee-table tome (600 pages, around $40) covering all aspects of contemporary Japanese graphic design. And the piece de resistance: “We’ve also thrown a DVD into the package, on which you’ll find a video tour of the coolest places to visit in Tokyo, interviews with art directors, filmmakers, and designers, and the latest and greatest television commercials from Japan.”

(The Suntory “cherubim” commercials are delightfully bizarre, as is the one for WOWOW. As for the video tour of Tokyo, it brought back so many memories for me…..)
