Book Description

4 Feb 2013
The simplest and most ancient of all decorative markings, stripes continue to fascinate. Natural inspirations in the forms of zebra stripes, rippled sand dunes, and intricately gnarled wood grain have led us to use stripes in every permutation: on human bodies from elaborate woven textiles to the iconic Breton T-shirt to sharp pin-striped suits, in art from the earliest cave paintings to vibrant op art canvases, and in industrial design from World War II-era dazzle battleships to the ubiquitous bar code. Their appeal endures. With over 250 full-colour images, Stripes: Design Between the Lines provides a wholly original look at one of the most recognizable patterns of all time. The illustrations create a rollicking visual ride while the accompanying text by turns witty and weighty shows how these potent, sometimes charged symbols have even changed the course of world history.

Product Description

Review

Certain colors and patterns can polarize people, but it's hard to find anyone who dislikes stripes. In her new book, 'Stripes', 'Veranda' contributor Linda O'Keeffe breaks her exploration of these simple, contrasting lines into the various moods they convey --from joyous to paradoxical, tribal to structural. Collages of inspirational imagery fill every chapter, providing plenty of ideas for achieving specific looks. --Veranda

Design editor Linda O'Keeffe's follow-up to 'Brilliant: White in Design', her 2011 book, looks at one of decorating's most classic patterns: stripes. Including work by top talents such as Jamie Drake, Alberto Pinto, and David Rockwell, as well as by artists Daniel Buren, Vanessa Beecroft, and Agnes Martin, this release traces the linear motif's history all the way back to the Paleolithic era and features eye-catching images of architecture, fashion, nature, and interiors. --Architectural Digest

Make a beeline for Linda O'Keeffe's 'Stripes', a straight take on an iconic pattern.... With riotous images including stripe-lined interiors from Christopher Coleman, Todd Oldham, Robert Couturier, and Mary McDonald, it's easy to read between the lines here: from Bendel boxes to zebra print, stripes are a classic; O'Keeffe walks the line with style. --New York Observer

Artists, designers and people who want more colour and frenetic movement in their lives will discover a synonymous resource in Stripes. --The World of Interiors

As decorative effects go, the humble stripe is one of the oldest recognized types of patterning … Linda O'Keeffe has certainly earned hers with this extensively illustrated collection --Creative Review

A detailed exploration of the humble stripe from Coco Chanel to Jean Paul Gautier and its resonance today --Irish Tatler
