This is every cat’s nightmare.

Very similar in style to this 70s Japanese poster. Has to be the same designer.

This poster is about tree-planting campaign.
It’s the designer’s name. His name is Shigeo Fukuda.

Fantastic design, where do you find this stuff? You have an enviable collection!

Just going off of my broken chinese here. The bottom line is approximately:

[artists name]/25th annual national tree planting day poster.

I think.

There is also a date on the bottom of May 1949, if that is helpful. I can’t say what it means though.

Yeah, Zenkoku Shokuju-sai = National Treeplanting Festival.

The date, though, is Showa 49, the 49th year of the Showa Emperor, Hirohito’s reign, which was 1975.
