STRIPES, GRIDS AND CHECKS. Michael Hann. Bloomsbury Academic, Bloomsbury Publishing, London, 2015. 168 pp. with 438 ills. (32 col.). 25 x 20 cm. LC 2015-5168 ISBN 9780857856265 In English.
Paperbound edition also available; see Worldwide 168382. Publisher's description: This book considers the nature of lines and assemblies of lines, including stripes and grids, as well as related phenomena such as checks, tilings and patterns, regular and irregular, repeating and non-repeating, in urban and rural environments, at the macro and micro levels, in land- and cityscapes, buildings, and other designed constructions, compositions and objects. Considered conventionally, checks, periodic tilings and regular patterns owe their compositional arrangements to an order imposed by an underlying grid structure. The intention in this book is to analyze, explain and illustrate the nature of each design type, to identify the structural (or geometric) similarities between each and to show how the manipulation of various underlying grid structures can provide innovative compositional frameworks for artists and designers. The discussion is richly illustrated with 400 black and white images and an 8 page colour section.
