Wonderful monograph of Kimura’s sixties and seventies output. Inspired by the exotic packaged disgarded by American G.I.’s, Kimura embarked on a career that included the New York Top Packaging Award in 1967, the Tokyo ADC Award in 1981, and the Japan Package Design Award Special Prize in 1985, and mastered a particular knack for a combination of print, die cutting and paper folding.
