Idea #366 is devoted to the feature “An Alternative History of Poetry in Japan 1945-1969” – an exceedingly thorough examination of the development of Japanese graphic design and typography filtered through the lens of books on poetry. This issue is an absolute must for anyone interested in Japanese design history. The issue also contains the history of Japanese ‘zines, as well as an excellent bilingual feature on contemporary Asian graphic designers. Lavishly designed, this issue is a standout.
