The exhibition introduced the results of the annual Tokyo TDC Awards, an international competition sponsored by the Tokyo Type Directors Club that attracts works representing the latest advances in typography. The awards have been garnering increasingly higher acclaim. In the 2011 competition, the call for entries in autumn 2010 attracted a total of 3,146 works, including 2,191 from Japan and 955 from other countries. The exhibition introduced 11 award-winning entries as well as other works nominated for the awards and works of outstanding merit. As the exhibition took place shortly after in the Great East Japan Earthquake, this year's show, as always, was filled with impressive works from around the world brimming with energy, including books with beautifully laid-out text and richly experimental fusions of graffiti and technology.
