(Industrial Art News, 1932–74)
This influential monthly design periodical was the mouthpiece of the Japanese government's Industrial Arts Institute (IAI) Ministry of International Trade and Industry (MITI). Its immediate antecedent was Kogei Shido (Industrial Art), the journal established by the IAI's immediate predecessor, the Institute for the Promotion of Industrial Arts of Northern Japan, in 1928. It became highly influential in the post‐Secondx World War period, with important critical contributions from key figures such as Masaru Katsumie, Isamu Kenmochi, and Riki Watanabe doing much to influence Japanese design thinking and educational outlook.
