Isami-ashi, Wait behind the white line, May 1979

I’ll stand up, July 1979

Frieze magazine linked to a whole bunch of these Japanese Subway Manners posters yesterday. On the surface, Japan loves etiquette and respect, which is charming in itself, but these posters take a particularly offbeat look at do’s and don’t’s on the trains and on the platforms. They’re all notable, but these two, in particular, caught my eye. Simple and weird.
