Hiroshima Appeals 2017 poster
the Hiroshima Peace Creation Fund, and the Hiroshima International Cultural Foundation.
a poster that communicates “Hiroshima’s Spirit” more powerfully than words alone.
The first poster, entitled “Burning Butterflies”, was created by Yusaku Kamekura in 1983,
and a new poster was produced each year for eight years.
The posters were exhibited in a nationwide tour called the Peace Poster Exhibition.
Internationally, they were gained prominence through display
in the Atomic Bomb Exhibition in Geneva, Switzerland in 1985,
and the “Hiroshima: A Message for Peace among People” exhibition that toured Europe in 1997.
The annual poster initiative was reinstated in 2005 to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of World War II.
The poster is included in the JAGDA Hiroshima Peace Poster Exhibition: “Pieces for Peace 2017”
and the KENYA HARA GRAPHIC DESIGN EXHIBITION.
They are also on general sale at 1,080 yen (tax incl.) each.
See the JAGDA website for details of this year’s poster.
