Retro Designs of Japan: Ready-to-Use Ornaments and Frames (with DVD-ROM)
Price : ¥2,800
This book is a collection of small motifs, lines and frames, which appeared on the print items in the period of Taisho and Showa (the early to mid 20th century.) Some motifs in this book are created by Yumeji Takehisa, whose designs still attract today’s designers. Influenced by art nouveau and art deco movement at that time, the objects in the book are elegant and useful for those who would love to have retro and vintage flavor in their design works. Most motifs are natural objects such as animals, birds, flowers and leaves. The digital files are on the accompanied DVD-ROM in the format of TIFF (1200dpi), JPEG (350dpi) and PNG, which are all suitable for professional use.
