Line Color Form : The Language of Art and Design, Paperback / softback Book

Line Color Form : The Language of Art and Design Paperback / softback


The only guide of its kind, "Line Color Form" offers a thorough introduction to design theory and terminology in a visually appealing and accessible format.

With hundreds of illustrations and minimal text, this primer was created with visual learners in mind, making it ideal for art students as well as those for whom English is a second language.

Each chapter focuses on a single aspect of visual composition, such as line, color, or material.

After an illustrated discussion of fundamental vocabulary, the chapters move on to applications of the concepts through images, including photographs, color wheels, significant works of art, and other visual aids.

Each image is accompanied by a descriptive paragraph offering an example of how the vocabulary can be applied in visual analysis. The book culminates with a section on formal analysis, aimed at teaching readers how to express their observations in formal writing and critical discourse.

Whether you are a design educator, student, or professional, native or non-native English speaker, this reference is a must.
