 JAPANESE 50’s ROLLERS IN 80’S

From the Ponyboy collection of books, we feature the highly collectible Teddy: Japanese 50’s Rollers in 80’s. Originally printed in 1981, publisher Daisan Shokan showcased brilliant images of youth on the streets of Japan, hanging out and dancing in 1950’s style clothing. Everything about this publication is visually electrifying. For starters, we are mad for the pop art photo cut-outs on the front and back book covers. Inside, we flipped out over images of extremely stylish adolescents, dressed in leather jackets and full skirts, dancing in various parks across Japan. The cities where the photographs were taken include Tokyo, as well as Nagoya, Kyoto, Osaka and Kobe. Unfortunately, the photographers appear to be uncredited in this publication.
