Film poster art and design from Japan is renowned as being among the most striking and dynamic in the world, with kanji logograms adding an extra dimension of graphic integration for the Western eye. TOKYO CINEGRAPHIX is a new high-quality book series which aims to represent some of the very best film posters created in Japan, both for indigenous films and also for foreign imports. Each volume includes 100 full-colour, full-page reproductions. TOKYO CINEGRAPHIX TWO focuses solely on Japanese cinema, and its infamous "bad girl" or "pinky violence" blend of sex and crime - from murdered strippers to female assassins, yakuza molls, delinquent highschool girls, sword-wielding female gamblers, killer prostitutes, female prisoners, girl gangs and tattooed she-bikers.
