While high-art Japanese cinema has been documented and analysed in the West, the subject of popular and cult Japanese movies has remained largely unexplored. The fantastic vintage posters that drew the masses to Kurosawa's samurai flicks, Godzilla, and sex-laden Pink movies have also been locked away to Western audiences. This collection of the best of the genre opens up this world of snarling gangsters, fire-breathing lizards and animated dreams for anyone with a sense of humour.

While many countries were still relying on the art of the illustrated poster to draw in crowds, photomontage had already become the characterising stylistic feature amongst Japanese poster designers and artists. With over 400 posters dating from 1960 to the modern day originating from Hollywood cinema to European art films, the posters included make obvious Japan's dominant position in the field of modern film advertising.
