Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Pantone, the worldwide color authority, invites you on a rich visual tour of 100 transformative years. From the Pale Gold (15-0927 TPX) and Almost Mauve (12-2103 TPX) of the 1900 Universal Exposition in Paris to the Rust (18-1248 TPX) and Midnight Navy (19-4110 TPX) of the countdown to the Millennium, the 20th century brimmed with color. Longtime Pantone collaborators and color gurus Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker identify more than 200 touchstone works of art, products, d cor, and fashion, and carefully match them with 80 different official PANTONE color palettes to reveal the trends, radical shifts, and resurgences of various hues. This vibrant volume takes the social temperature of our recent history with the panache that is uniquely Pantone.

Book News Annotation:

Pantone is a New Jersey-based company known for its proprietary color matching systems used in virtually every industry where color is a concern including graphic arts, fashion, architecture, plastics, and paint. Eiseman and Recker are color and trend forecasters for the company. What they've assembled in this unusual book is a decade-by-decade survey of the 20th century from the point of view of the colors that prevailed. For each decade they selected sources that display particular color palettes--e.g. paintings, costumes, cultural and social events, advertisements. The full-page and smaller illustrations are supported by text describing the cultural context. For each example the colors are identified as named and numbered in the Pantone system. Designers of any type will find this a useful and interesting reference. The volume measures 9.5x11.25". Annotation ©2012 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
