Library, n.1: Favorite books of the recent times
We believe in the impact of the research source, with the time and depth of information processing that good books provide as few other things do.
Fine arts, patterns, and color theory are great conversation starters when thinking about color palettes — as color does not exist alone: it is always attached to a shape and interacting with its surroundings and context of meaning. The content of these pages gives us a basis for experimentation.
Here we share 5 titles that have spent the most time on our desks:
1. Body of Art, Phaidon editors
2. Vitamin P2, Phaidon editors
3. Living with Pattern: color, texture, and print at home, by Rebecca Atwood
4. Patterns: Inside the Design Library: Peter Koepke
5. Interaction of Color 50th Anniversary Edition by Josef Albers
