Expo '70 book

My good friend Chikara sent me this guidebook from the 1970 World's Fair and Expo, held in his hometown of Osaka Japan. The book is filled to the brim with watercolor illustrations of the different expo pavilions, logos and maps. I'm a huge fan of amusement park maps, so this was a real treat. Thanks Chikara!

i love the space revue graphic and the weird futuristic dwellings in the last image paired with the playful cartoon beings, great contrasts.
