The case for Japanese paper

File #1

The remarkably gorgeous, psychedelicised poster designs for the release of ground-breaking (at home for style and in American obscenity laws) Swedish art-film, I am Curious (Yellow) from 1967.

Here we see the two styles (maybe there are more?) for the standard Japanese B2 (20" x 28") poster and the tatekan style which is a tapestry of two B2-sized posters together vertically.

I think it's safe to say that America needed a little stimulation in their lives when you compare these to the US release poster at the end and which we've seen in these pages before but is here again for the purpose of illustration.
