Koga Magazine Cover 古賀雑誌の表紙


Cover Design for Koga magazine, a publication that ran from 1932 to 1933.  It was a Japanese art photography magazine, published initially by Jurakusha then by  Koga‐sha. The short lived publication often used these same three colors in its cover design, black, yellow and creme. This cover uses a mix of large typeface and a variety of fonts. It seems to sue a structured grid like pattern but this is somewhat interrupted by the left alignment of the main title in contrast with the center alignment of the rest of the text. The venn-diagram esc. image in the center of the design is reminiscent  of a camera changing lenses or utilizing a flash subtly reminding the on-looker of the magazine's contents
