  1. Amazing designs, all these are.

    Such designs always give me enough inspiration to start something unique, every time. I can see your research behind getting these designs to us.

    Thanks for such a lovely share

  2. Tozzisays:

    Third example is done by Shigeo Fukuda, not Kazumasa Nagai. Fukuda is well known for using legs in his posters.
