Rockport Publishers, Inc., Beverly, USA
This is a reference book and comprehensive guide to choosing the perfect color and pattern in design. It is a desktop library of colors and patterns that addresses the professional’s real-world needs in working with harmonies and contrasts. Divided into six unique style sections, the book provides readers with 15 appropriate colors for each section, which are then incorporated into 25 different patterns shown in six or eight color variations each. This enables readers to see the dramatic effect colors have in design and helps them better understand how to use color effectively. The book also demonstrates ways of creating designs that are distinctly unique from one another yet hold together in a group.
