His work draws together influences from East and West, acknowledging the vocabulary of European Modernism while remaining characteristically Japanese. Inspired by sources as diverse as traditional Japanese illustration techniques and his passion for American jazz, he is renowned for numerous cultural posters and programmes for theatre and ballet, many for Kanze Noh Drama. This work examines Tanaka's entire career, encompassing graphic design and art direction, editorial and interior design. The book is structured into four chapters, each addressing a different aspect of Tanaka's career and a concluding section comprises a critical anthology with contributions from commentators on contemporary graphic design.
