In very good condition with some noticeable creases and edge wear (as is usual with this 1960s print - it adds to the vintage look!), with strong, vibrant colours (much more neon than photographs on screen can display) and will be incredibly eye-catching framed up. Not backed or repaired. Please contact us if you need more photos and details
For the Word and Image exhibition Tadanori Yokoo created a poster with no typography to distract the viewer. Using mouths and one large eye he perfectly evokes the concept of 'word' and 'image' He employs the rays of the rising sun, one of his favorite and recurring motifs, but makes the colors red, white and blue for America rather than the usual Japanese red and white
