Made in Japan

Pink Tentacle recently posted a really nice collection of vintage Japanese cause posters.

I'd like to share my favourites here:

Against the introduction of nuclear weapons into Japan (Kinkichi Takahashi, 1960s)

Hiroshima Appeals (Yusaku Kamekura, 1983) 

Goodbye whale (Mamoru Suzuki, 1994)

Anti-pollution poster (Kenji Ito, 1973)

Environmental pollution (Shigeo Fukuda, 1973)

Thought-provoking, simple, and beautiful. A great reminder that sometimes words fail us.
