Sugiura Kohei

The start of a new month always means it’s time to check out the new exhibition at the Ginza Graphic Gallery. This month, starting on the 5th, we get “Kohei Sugiura: A Whirlwind Half-Century in Magazine Design.”

Through five decades Kohei Sugiura has been a revolutionary innovator in all aspects of graphic design, with a core focus on book design, editorial work and typography. In collaboration with his highly talented staff, like a whirlwind he has created an inexhaustible wealth of works of remarkable strength.

For this forthcoming exhibition, the spotlight is being trained on Sugiura’s accomplishments in magazine design, a field that has always had special importance within his broad palette of endeavors. The show will feature roughly 500 of the more than 2,000 works he has produced in magazine design. In tandem with the exhibition, a collection of Sugiura’s works is being published and two Gallery Talk sessions will be convened.

Being the magazine nut that I am, you just know I’m going to be there. Until October 30.
