One of Yokoo's earliest posters, this promotes a book by Isamu Kurita, for which Yokoo also did the illustrations. Kurita wrote, "in considering illustration now, in its newer broader sense we can think of it as having the position within the sphere of design which adds flesh to words, sounds and forms." This "sensitive" design approach was perfectly suited to Yokoo's style. Rare.
