The book suggestion of this week is about compositions, black and white layouts more precisely. The book title is Palette 01: Black & White - New Monochrome Graphics by Viction Workshop and it's also part of the Viction Palette series.
Palette 01: Black & White is the first in a new series from Victionary. It collects only the most engaging design work making use of just two colors - Black & White. The range of projects created with just these two shades is sure to amaze, as the designers featured have completed an incredibly diverse spectrum of 2D and 3D products that focus on aspects such as scale, pattern, positive and negative space, line work, typography and previously underutilized materials. Many designers get that faraway look in their eyes when asked about art school, reminiscing about remedial classes spent focusing on simple skills essential to the mastery of their trade - late nights refining lines, doing contour drawings, and developing shading. The mature designer draws on these lessons and is able to create knock-out work without the use of color in response to both simple and complex briefs. This book comes in two random alternate covers: Black or White.
