Some of them may be reflecting the films' depth of feelings excellently, and the others may be bringing you a surprise like 'why this poster for that film?' We would like you to enjoy another face of cinema art flowered out of the screen." Includes essays by Okada and Teramoto as well as interviews with poster designer Kiro Higaki and with Yoshimi Nara, Event Producer. Catalogue from the exhibition held October to December 2012.
