Girls' magazines were published in the Meiji, Taisho, and Showa periods. These educational general-interest magazines were filled with entertaining articles on fashion, music, and literature for young girls. Of particular interest are the pioneering supplements, featuring fancy goods, that were included with the magazines. This book introduces some 300 supplements, categorised by illustrator, that include miniature books of famous novels and stories, stylebooks, picture postcards, letter sets, folding books of handicrafts, and other gems.
