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 stripes have even changed the course of world history. 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 as well as recent design stars including Jonathan Adler, Geoffrey Beene, Jamie Drake, Sol LeWitt, Todd Oldham, Paul Smith, and Vivienne Westwood have incorporated stripes into their work and daily lives.
