4.0 out of 5 stars Interesting book on color throu the history, 10 Jun 2002
J. Gage debates the connection betwen color theory and culture: Is the way we percieve colors from culture or nature.
Then there is a collection of essays, from Newton predecesors to Goethe, Chevreul and Kandinsky by historic order. I found it interesting and sometimes compeling.

4.0 out of 5 stars A very good book about the discovery of colour in history, 10 Jun 2002
More than sistematic book is a collection of essays about color and culture throu history: is the perception of color historic or determined by nature? what's the connection betewn language and colour theory? Newton Optics and his predecesors, Goethe, Kandinsky and Chevreul are interestingly exposed
I've found it rather interesting and sometimes compeling.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent introduction to the history of graphic Design, 15 Jan 2002
This is the best introduction to the history of Graphic Design I ever read.
The book is very well organized (chronological and geographically), and despiste the amplitude of the subject tries to reach the roots of the cultural and technological context of the big mutations of the contemporary graphic Design.
Easy to read contains reprodutions (however small in size)that help to visualize the essencial movements and authors, and doesn't stop at the Bauhus but goes to just yesterday.
