    "In this portfolio Warhol’s style and technique are involved: the subject here, as such, is Warhol’s art, as it is the 10 hallmarks of Japanese industry represented. Warhol’s visits to Japan and his fascination with Japanese culture is underscored by the primacy of Walkman, Hondo and Nikon among others, in American and world culture today. These images aptly parallel Warhol’s Campbell Soup Can, Brillo Box and Coca-Cola paintings. As Japanese prints spurred the importance of printmaking in the 19th and 20th century western art, this portfolio is a fitting posthumous homage to Warhol by Japan and the medium that was the fulcrum of his creative energies." from the portfolio justification note
