These “topical galleries” were selected from roughly 2,700 pre-1945 posters and handbills in the online database of the Ohara Institute for Social Research at Hosei University in Tokyo.

The graphics here, grouped in eight categories, contain no metadata apart from Ohara’s ID numbers (in two forms) plus the date the graphic appeared, where known. The Ohara website contains considerable English-language commentary, plus translation of many captions.
