This poster was printed by the Honda Japan Research & Development department using the original negative from a picture taken by Playboy magazine for an article on Soichiro and the Honda company. It is believed that this is the only remaining print of this poster
There are a few marks on the left side along with some age discoloring on the borders. The left border shows some light color transfer near the bottom. 23 3/4″ x 36″.
A clipped copy of that article and picture are included.
Also included is a spiral cut 1963 “A look at Honda” book on the Honda company. It is unbound and there are some front and back pages missing so it is currently not a book per. se.. This was from the files of the Industrial Designer who was then working in the R&D department. It includes the full sections for “A look at the President”, “A look at the History” and what we believe to be the complete section for “A look at the History” and we believe only the index, possibly introduction and one section are missing but we do not have a copy of this rare book to make certain.
