N-LT (2): Gurafiku



Searching for material for the series on vintage movie posters I did last week, I happened upon this Tumblr-blog Gurafiku by a design student from the Minneapolis College of Art and Design called Ryan Hageman. He seems to be fascinated with Japanese graphic design and has collected a whole lot of prime examples to share with us on his blog. Ranging from old Ukiyo-e prints to manga, from stylish posters for exhibitions to outrageous movie posters, from book and album covers to ads and web design, from typography to illustration, this collection is a joy to browse through and to keep an eye on as it is still growing every day.

Here are a few examples of what he has in store, just to wet your appetite.

Believe me, this is just a very small selection of what can be found on the Gurafiku blog. I wanted you to get an idea of how diverse the collection really is and I still feel I’m failing to do so. Again, I’m going to suggest you leave here. Don’t worry, you can come back, of course. You know you are always welcome. But for now: go and visit Ryan Hageman on Gurafiku. He has the stuff.
