Idea #363 focuses on the irreverent, sexual graphic work of Purple Journal art director Makoto Orui and the anachronistic work of editorial designer Yuzuri Agi, along with much more. This issue is an excellent overview of the surprising foundations of Japanese pop and rock music editorial design – something far different than what happened in the 70s and 80s in Europe, North America, and Australasia.
