The 119th Exhibition The 8th Tokyo Typedirectors Club April 3-27 ,1996

I sometimes marvel at our unlimited capacity to embrace everincreasing appetites-for food, for sex and for knowledge. The lust for knowledge, of course, is the desire for a wider, deeper understanding of the world around us. I think a typographical art work exhibits, in a concentrated form, the designer's lust for knowledge. A multitude of artworks were submitted to Tokyo TDC this year, from Japan and from overseas. We are very happy that both Ikko Tanaka, who has been a faithful observer of the great history of man and letters, and Katsunori Aoki, an up-and-coming member of TDC, received awards. Submissions from abroad doubled this year. The art works that excel among so many worthy pieces are truly outstanding. I hope the Tokyo Typedirectors Club will continue to provide an open and free forum where differing cultures, generations, ideas and methodologies can meet and get to know one another.
