Born in Tokyo in 1940, Shin Matsunaga has been one of Japan’s most influential graphic designers since the end of the 1960s. From the end of the 1970s onwards, he has also forged a name for himself internationally. He combines traditional Japanese graphic art, drawings and paintings with Western set pieces without ever merging the two. And now you know as much as we do. This book’s 2-page introduction gives just a taste of the esteem in which he is held in Japan—the remaining sixty or so pages will show why he’s earned that esteem, with picture after picture of good work.
