    Description

    Standing on Mountains (Nagoya Rail Agency, 1930s). Japanese Poster (24.5" X 36").
    This wonderful vintage poster was issued by Japan's national railway, in this instance the Nagoya Rail Agency, during the early to mid 1930s. These posters were created for domestic use only to promote travel within Japan to various national parks, hot spring resorts and other notable destinations. The artwork for the poster was created by Kenkichi Sugimoto (1905-2004) whose work was mostly focused on the Nagoya area, the subject of many of the Japanese travel posters offered in this auction. This example states; Discount on auto (bus) travel during July and October. Other discounts also offered. Since none of these posters were distributed outside of Japan, they are quite scarce. When various Japanese museum poster curators (as well as the Ogaki Poster Museum) were supplied images, they replied that there were no examples of this genre in their collection. This lovely copy had only small chips in the upper and lower borders with a bit more in the lower extending into the solid black field. Very Fine on Linen.
