Description

Book Overview from the Publisher:

Throughout history and in all cultures, designers and makers have been concerned not only with the fluctuating relationship between the form and function of objects, but also with their colour. This unique book explores and celebrates colour in all aspects of design, whether used for decorative effect or symbolic intent. It will transform the way we think about the objects around us that unwittingly define where we come from and who we are.
