Where would we be without Pantone? From colour charts to kichenwear, the company has come a long way from its humble beginnings in commercial printing in the 1950s. Pantone: The 20th Century In Color is an epic compendium of iconic design as told through the Pantone colour chart.
In this coffee table tome, Pantone collaborators Leatrice Eiseman and Keith Recker take you on a tour of 200 works of art, products and fashion of the 20th century, matching them to their appropriate swatches on the seminal colour chart. A fascinating look at colour trends of the last 100 and an absolute must for design devotees.
