SUGOROKU. KAWABATA RYUSHI. - [Shonen Mirai Ryoko Sugoroku].

Tokyo, Nihon Shonen 1918 (Taisho 7). Colour broadside 78x54cm. Some smudges, a short tear in one fold; used but a very decent copy ¶ The New Year gift from the boy's magazine Nihon Shonen. A view of travel in the future, this is among my favourites of the travel adventure sugoroku and hard to find in anything like one piece. Doubtless it was a favourite with many others too. Kawabata did several of the best, most captivating, sugoroku of the period. His career took a curious turn during a 1913 stay in America to study western painting. Apparently he was so impressed with the Japanese art he saw in Boston he switched to being a Nihonga painter. Still, he remained being an illustrator for magazines for quite some time. As did most of the early to mid 20th century artists now revered.
