The 221st Exhibition Wind and Lightning : A Half-Century of Magazine Design by Kohei Sugiura October 5(Tue.) - 30(Sat.),2004

In my almost 50 years design history, I have undertaken 40 kinds of magazines and close to 2000 issues. They covered a wide range of subjects such as architecture, philosophy, culture, tradition, folklore, education, science, Asian culture, politics and rumors, etc. It became a place to view the magazine designs my staff and I had worked fervently for many nights in a row. Involved with us were many editors, writers, progress in production and printers. There keywords included "covers as faces" , "unpredictable dreams" , "constantly in flux" and "linking chaos and order" . This was the first exhibition of my work. We tried to have a dynamic exhibition space with poster-sized printouts of many precious books, with only one or two copies preserved, three-dimensional books of an entire thick magazine magnified tenfold, and animations. I would like to express my deep appreciation to Shoji Usuda, Epson and all the others who cooperated.
