Stripes, Design Between The Lines by Linda O'Keeffe
Here at MONC XIII we turn to our favorite books again and again for ideas and inspiration. Here you will find a select group of our favorite new, vintage and one-of-a-kind book sets to add inspiration to your life. Whether it's decorating, cooking or diving into a novel from one of our favorite authors, these books have the MONC XIII stamp of approval. In Stripes: Design Between the Lines, writer and design expert Linda O’Keeffe explores the lineage of lines as they shape culture, art, and style. 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. With over 250 full-color images, Stripes: Design Between the Lines provides a wholly original look at one of the most recognizable patterns of all time. Eight thematic chapters present stripes in every conceivable manifestation, from diabolical to decorative, historic to postmodern. The result is a wonderfully varied visual collage that shows how design-savvy people throughout the ages and recent design stars have incorporated stripes into their work and daily lives.
