Modan

Branding, Book Design

Modan is a small publisher specializing in Japanese modernist literature, with an emphasis on works produced during the Taisho(1912–1926) and early Showa(1926–1945) period. The name, a loanword of modern, is derived from the modernist aesthetic that permeated culture on all levels in pre-war Japan.
