The Works of Yasuji Hanamori - A Designer's Hand, an Editor's Eye

February 11 – April 9, 2017

Kurashi no techo (Living Handbook), a magazine for homemakers, was a conspicuous presence in the postwar Japanese publishing world. In addition to serving as editor-in-chief for 30 years, from the time the magazine was launched in 1948 until 1978, Hanamori Yasuji (1911-1978) was involved in a wide range of activities including book design, illustration, copywriting, and journalism. This exhibition examines the question of how to live a beautiful life, which Hanamori posed to Japanese society, through his efforts as an editor and designer.
