Slideshow: Classic Works of Japanese Literature Get a New Look

May 29th, 2013

This spring, Vintage Books proudly reintroduced twelve Modern Japanese Classics. These legendary works by Yukio Mishima, Junichiro Tanizaki, Yasunari Kawabata, and Kobo Abe now feature new covers with original art created specifically for these reissues. With the help of a framing design created by John Gall, the four titles in each set can be arranged together to create a larger, tiled design.

For a closer look at these beautiful new covers, take a look at our slideshow below.
