GAS BOOK 24 is the first art book by Hideki Inaba, a graphic designer/artist who represents Japan’s new generation. With a free spirit that is not bound by stereotypes, he has created numerous advertisements, editorial designs, logos, packages, etc., as well as his own self-work. In addition, Inaba has also created and exhibited his own artworks. This art book features a selection of his work from his extensive past works.
As an art director himself, Inaba challenges the design template adopted by the 20 titles published by GASBOOK thus far, breaking away from it by designing his own edition and endowing the book a new look.
