I ’ d like to share one colors book wrote by Leatrice Eiseman who is one of the Pantone’ color specialist.
I was absorbed by this book, it is not a synthesize article, but context of the 20th century color. In every chapter, there are some typical art works and nature beauty represent the ages popular colors, including painting, art craft, architecture, products, superstar and so on, behind the picture is the story happened in our world. All marked with color tone, the art work is very old and silence, but the color value reveal their rational existence. It’s hard to say anything is the right representative of the age, but I like this kind of orderliness.
We can feel the elegant in the early 20 century color, as the develop of the art ideological trend, color became varied and eye-catching, there are heavy and dark color during world war.
All these magical pieces composite a grand color banquet. I really feel hungry when I saw these color >_< .
