Film poster art and design from Japan is renowned as being among the most striking and dynamic in the world, with kanji logograms adding an extra dimension of graphic integration for the Western eye. TOKYO CINEGRAPHIX is a new high-quality book series which aims to represent some of the very best film posters created in Japan, both for indigenous films and also for foreign imports. Each volume includes 100 full-colour, full-page reproductions. TOKYO CINEGRAPHIX ONE showcases a range of horror and exploitation film posters created in Japan, ranging from indigenous sex and horror hybrids to classic American horror films and controversial Italian cine-nightmares of cannibals and war atrocities.
