ABOUT THE BOOK
Creators’ love for black and white is a constant. Used to be the height of imaging and now a creative attitude, the austerely simple yet expressive black and white enthral designers for their stack contrast and evocative power in graphics and body of text that no other colours can attain.
Black & White is an all-new edition focusing on monochromatic graphic art. Be it a brand element, an aesthetic statement or a low-cost solution, the 130 showcased print art, brand design, art installations and fashion items in this book manifest the versatility and dramatic appearance of black and white blended with photography, special printing, and sometimes shadows and light. In words and selected creative projects, the hard core of this global movement today expounds on their conscious decision to fix on this limited palette to create, despite the exhilarating colour trends and the many quality colour printing options to hand.
“Black and white are condensed information— information that is communicated through colour.”
