Takei Takeo was a seminal figure in THE LAND OF CHILDREN and his wide contacts throughout the artistic and literary world ensured that the magazine was the finest of its kind. Its artwork is justly famous and utterly charming. Any issues of the magazine have become very hard to find, particularly ones in as good condition as this one. There are illustrations by Fukazawa Shôzô, Koga Harue, Suzuki Shintarô, Matsuyama Fumio, Takei himself, and many others. This copy is further distinguished by having an image done by the important avant-garde figure Murayama Tomoyoshi (he was jailed that very month for two years for being a member of the Japanese Communist Party). The only hint of violence or war in the magazine, interestingly enough, is a drawing by a child contestant illustrating Japanese troops overwhelming Korean protestors in Korea.
