Made in Japan these three simple words conjure playful wit, a delight in detail, formal elegance, and graphic energy. Author of 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 patters, sumo cards, children's books, household product packages, and much more, the fascinating objects assembled here 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.
Reed Darmon has traveled throughout Asia, collecting pop culture ephemera and "graphic anthropology" along the way. He is the author of Made in China and has designed numerous books and gift products published by Chronicle Books. He lives in Portland, Oregon.
