Along Manchurian Railways, 1937: Travel Brochure

This brochure was issued by the South Manchurian Railway as part of what I consider an incredible and amazing series in the second half of the 1930s. This particular example: “Along Manchurian Railways” was issued in 1937 to promote travel to Manchuria and it cities. The artist signed it either in a Chinese character or his own symbol. I particularly love the smaller letters embedded in the larger letters. I do not know the back story here but this and the next few brochures I will post were clearly part of a series. If any one knows the history, please let me know.
