Comments Binnie's "Moga Girl" (third print of this series of 20th Century beauties) pulls out all the stops with a stunning combination of deluxe printing techniques. Like Kiyoshi's "Tipsy" of 1930--Paul's "Moga" print (COMPARE both prints) boldly shows the dancing, smoking/drinking, and flirting girls of the 1920's Japanese economic boom.
