One of Japan's most famous but least known directors, Masumura's films were brought to India by the Japan Foundation, New Delhi. Masamura is considered one of the most influential post-war Japanese filmmakers. He's also very prolific with 57 films completed between 1957 and 1982.
For the design of the catalogue, we wanted to highlight the power of his movies by using large black & white film stills juxtaposed with striking typography that gives the design a contemporary edge. Printed on 100% recycled paper (Shiro Echo). The binding uses a simple stitch to give it a Japanese sensibility and a sense of nostalgia. A special thanks to Adele Favreau, our intern from France for her contribution.
