Catalogue of a prize-winning exhibition of advertising photography sponsored by Asahi Newspapers in 1933, the 4th in a series of international advertising exhibitions. The catalogue is divided into four sections, namely cosmetics, pharmaceuticals, food & drink, and various (mostly electronics and tabi) and prizes were awarded for each section. Modernist trends are clearly visible with photographers employing the latest techniques in photo-montages and vying with each other for sharp angles and high contrasts. The appendix gives a list of photographers in the whole of Japan together with their addresses. Only 1 in OCLC. (Titus Boeder, 4/2007)
