“These illustrations are from a late 17th-century document based on the work of Majima Seigan, a 14th-century monk-turned-doctor. According to legend, Seigan had a powerful dream one night that the Buddha would bless him with knowledge to heal eye diseases. The following morning, next to a Buddha statue at the temple, Seigan found a mysterious book packed with medical information. The book allegedly enabled Seigan to become a great eye doctor, and his work contributed greatly to the development of ophthalmology in Japan in the 16th and 17th centuries.”

This massive book features a thousand images, and it was not easy to select only twenty-five. Graphic design titans like Jan Tschichold, George Salter, Herbert Bayer, and Herbert Matter rub shoulders with Hans Bellmer, John Heartfield, Hanna Hoch, and a gaggle of Expressionists and Dadaists. It’s an overwhelming visual feast summed up by new favorite German word “Blickfang”: “eye catcher.””
