ODE TO COLOR: THE TEN ESSENTIAL PALETTES FOR LIVING AND DESIGN. Lori Weitzner. Harper Design, HarperCollins Publishers, Inc., New York, 2016. 256 pp. with 152 ills. (141 col.). 27 x 23 cm. LC 2014-952861 ISBN 9780062396174 In English.
Publisher's description: Ode to Color, a stunning anthology by renowned and award-winning textile and wallcovering designer Lori Weitzner, principal of Lori Weitzner Design, Inc., offers an immersive, sensual, and engaging journey in the world of color as it applies to culture, design, mood, and memory. Each of the ten chapters in this richly illustrated volume presents a distinct color world through an intimate and often kaleidoscopic perspective, a compilation of the numerous -- and often shifting -- associations and emotions we assign to a color or group of colors. Each chapter combines diverse imagery -- evocative fine art and photography, environmental interiors, details of Weitzner's gorgeous designs as well as her sketches and watercolors -- with excerpts from literature and her own essays on a wide array of topics relating to the palette. The result is a fully sensory conveyance of each palette's particular power as well as a consideration of its tangible and intangible connections, from its place in religion, pop culture, and commerce to the impact it has upon our decision making, our moods, and our tastes.
