The Stedelijk Museum Amsterdam has a history with posters and specially the posters from Japan were presented on multiple occasions within exhibitions on the subject. In 1977 , the “Japanse Poster” exhibition catalogue was designed by Wim Crouwel, who designed a very special catalogue for the exhibition . The catalogue is one of the best from the seventies and instead of the typical Crouwel typography
on the cover there are Japanese letters drawing your attention. Red lettering on a silver background let this one stand out from the rest.
This catalogue was published with number 617 within the series of published Stedelijk Museum catalogues.
