|Cover designs for the monthly travel magazine The Sea, published in Japan for the shipping line Osaka Shosen Kaisha (OSK), a rival of the NYK Lines. Most of these colorful cover designs are from the late 1930s and early 40s. The OSK was a very popular shipping line for many years, offering luxury round-the-world service for well-heeled passengers. After Pearl Harbor, much of the fleet was either requisitioned for the war effort or destroyed during WWII. In 1964 OSK merged with the Mitsui Steamship Co. to form the Mitsui OSK Lines which is still in operation today.|
